2019 Summer Reading Programs 

Summer Reading is vital to keep your child reading on grade level. Students that don't read over the summer can lose more than a year's worth of reading progress in just a few months (this is called the Summer Slide, find out more here). Combat this by visiting Academy Intermediate School's Library this summer or borrowing e-books to read while school is out! Elementary and Middle/High School students are welcome to visit the Intermediate Library as well. We will have age appropriate materials available for all students and students can request books from the other campus's collections if they can't find something they want to read.


Please see our hours below. We will be closed the week of July 1st-5th.
