Roland Park Country School: Lower School Suggested Summer Reading

RPCS Libraries



Happy Summer!  It's the perfect time for pleasure reading in a cozy corner at home or a beautiful spot in nature.  Listed here are some suggested titles. There is not enough room to include the many wonderful options to consider, but check out the box below titled "Great Books Lists to Peruse" for other ideas.

Even though we cannot access physical libraries at this time, please make use of our digital library through SORA!  You'll find many of the titles here plus more.  Find the SORA box below or click here for access.  If you have any difficulties getting started, feel free to email me at

Also, please consider supporting our local independent bookstores by ordering online and having books shipped directly to you. The Ivy Book Shop has put together a summer reading site just for RPCS, offering a 10% discount!
