Summer Reading 2020 Activities and Resources

Support summer reading with your Gale resources!

Gale Books and Authors helps readers find books that will keep them turning pages while they participate in summer reading programs, and at any other time during the year! Watch the Gale Books and Authors library webinar to help you and your library staff build their knowledge of this resource. Then, share the Gale Books and Authors - Finding Your Next Read  video tutorial with readers as part of summer reading promotion to help them find authors and titles that will keep them on track to complete summer reading challenges. 

Gale In Context resources provide an ad-free environment to inspire learning all summer long. Encourage kids in elementary and middle school to begin exploring by including story-related activities within these resources in your summer reading program. Use the Gale In Context: Elementary Fairy Tales Scavenger Hunt with kindergarten through fifth graders and the Gale In Context: Middle School Myths, Legends and Tales Scavenger Hunt with sixth through eighth graders. Download the questions documents, and add your library's access URL for each resource before saving and sharing with kids and their families. You could even have families share a picture of their kids' completed scavenger hunts before providing access to the  Gale In Context: Elementary Fairy Tales Scavenger Hunt Answers and Gale In Context: Middle School Myths, Legends and Tales Scavenger Hunt Answers.
