Top Summer Reads at the County Library

Summers were made for reading – is there a better place to have your nose stuck in a book than at the beach or the pool? Bonus points for taking the written word with you on vacation! 

If you’re having a hard time choosing something to pick up and dive into, the San Diego County Library is here to help. Visit your local library and check out or reserve these currently most-requested reads for both children and adults. Enjoy a couple chapters under the shade at a County Park or while your kiddos splash around at the waterfront.
