Cleveland Public Library YREAD?

Cleveland Public Library’s YREAD project provides multiple copies of quality titles for use by teachers in the classroom or community group leaders.

I have been collaborating with a brilliant librarian at the Cleveland Public Library-Brooklyn Branch. Her name is Laura McShane and she is awesome.  The YREAD? kits she has available are great because I can get 30 copies of a great novel. There is a long list of novels to choose from that are educational and engaging.

The titles selected for the program are available for Kindergarten through High School students. Here, you’ll find the listing that I use for my own classroom.

The Cleveland Public Library offers YREAD as a teacher resource; get more information at
