Summer 4 Reading Challenge

The Summer 4 Reading Challenge is an optional library program for rising 7th and 8th graders.  Students are challenged to read 4 books over the summer, fill out a reading log, and turn it in to the SCMS Library the first week of school.  Students who complete the challenge are invited to a celebration in September.

What to Read Next


The SCMS Library is OPEN!  We are excited to see you! You can come to the library to browse/checkout books, find out more about eBooks/eAudio resources, play games/puzzles, or ask questions/get research help.  


Library Hours

Students can visit the library before school (7:10-7:25), during Learning Seminar (with a pass), during Lunch (visit the cafeteria first and sign out before coming to the library), and with a class. 


Book Checkout

Students can check out books for 3 weeks at a time.  Need more time? As long as another student doesn't have the book on hold, you can renew the book. We do not charge late fees. If a book you want to read is checked out, you can place a hold and we'll deliver it to you in Learning Seminar once it comes in!
