• Summer Reading

     Below are brochures for summer reading for BMS students.  Each grade level has a theme and suggested titles on the brochures below.  Students must read a fiction and an informational title that is thematically appropriate - all students have the option to complete electronic registration and logging to be eligible for BMS Library and Berkeley County Public Library prizes. In addition, BMS students must complete the summer reading assignment sheet for each book read.  These assignment sheets will be turned in to your child's ELA teacher by September 1st.
     
     
    How to Register and Log Your Summer Reading

    June 5th - July 31st

    1. Go to berkeleylibsc.readsquared.com and click “register.”

    2.  Select  “I’m registering myself only”  for an individual account or “I’m a parent registering my kids” for a family account.

    3. Follow the prompts as they guide you through the process. 

    4. Make a unique username and password.  Please write these in a place easily remembered, so that you may access your account  throughout the summer.

    5. Once an adult account is created, you will be asked to create accounts for each individual family member.  Usernames

    must be unique but can be similar to help you remember (e.g., BookLover1; BookLover2). 

    *Passwords may be duplicated for each account.

    Once completed, you are ready to read and “Build A Better World!” Visit your account often to submit the books you have read, play games, or watch educational videos to earn points and win prizes. Instructions for each age group can be found online.
