Summer Reading Lists 2014

Copies of Miles River Middle School, and Hamilton-Wenham High School, summer reading books are available through the library's catalog. Click on the title below to place a hold. There are also book bags set up for each grade for easy selection and request of more than one title.
Find the item you want, then click: Place Hold . You will be prompted for your library card barcode number, and your PIN (the last 4 digits of your telephone number unless you have changed it). If all H-W copies are out, and the book is available at one of our consortium libraries, it will take about 3 days for it to travel here to the H-W Library.  You will be notified by phone call, email, or text when your book arrives.  To change your notification method sign in to your library account.  After notification you have 7 days to check out the book at the circulation desk before it is sent back to the owning Library.
