Dear Mr. Young,

in Summer 2018 by

The Library is eagerly anticipating two major events of this summer: reading with leisurely abandon and welcoming Mr. Young as Park’s new Head of School. Then we thought, Why not combine the two? With this in mind, we are launching the “Dear Mr. Young” summer reading incentive. All Park students will be given a self-addressed postcard along with their summer reading assignments, and we are hoping that everyone will take the time to write Mr. Young with their reading (and summer) updates. Adults in the community are also encouraged to participate. Additional postcards can be picked up in the library until the end of the school year. We want Mr. Young to be as inundated with mail as Harry Potter was when he received his invitation to Hogwarts!

Great reading suggestions for kids of all ages can be found on the Library’s web page Park Reads!, 2018 ALSC Summer Reading List, and We Need Diverse Books Summer Reading Series.


Here’s a sneak peek at some of the new titles that can be found on the Park Reads! site for book recommendations.


Park's outstanding library, which contains 30,000 volumes and countless digital materials, is truly the heart of the School. Four librarians provide a welcoming resource center and gathering place for the whole Park community.
