Welcome to the HCISD Summer Reading Page!

Why does Harlingen CISD have a Summer Reading Program?

Harlingen CISD requires students who enroll in Pre-AP/AP English to read over the summer for several reasons:

  • Allows teachers to begin literary discussions right away
  • Students maintain their English Language Arts skills over the summer when they read
  • Encourages independent reading, analysis and life-long learners
  • Exposes students to literature they might not choose on their own

Summer Reading is Easy!

There are many options available for selecting a book for summer reading. The Harlingen Public Library has many of the titles available and your Campus English Department will also have books you can check out over the summer.

Of course, you can always purchase a copy of the novel and start your own library, or download the book to your electronic device. Be sure to check out Overdrive on the HCISD website to see if the novel you want to download is available there for free!
