Summer Reading at the Tuscaloosa Public Library

Just because it’s summer is no excuse to slack on reading!  There are some great books to spend your days with during your vacation (and you’ll find it easier to settle back in to your classes in August).  Check out (see what I did there?) the summer reading program at the Tuscaloosa Public Library, where they will have fun activities and good books galore!  The program starts May 31.

On Your Mark, Get Set…Read!


Library End-of-Year Information


Reminder:  April 18 is the last day to borrow library books for the school year.  All books are due back no later than April 22.  We are closing a little earlier this year so we can merge the Southview Middle School Library collection with our library collection.  See Mrs. Overstreet if you have questions.
