South Brunswick Reads

For the past 7 years, the South Brunswick school district and public librarians have invited members of the community to engage in a common reading experience called South Brunswick Reads (SBReads).
Our readings to-date have included the following:

  • 2011 - The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
  • 2012 - Alice and her Adventures in Wonderland
  • 2013 - Genre-based Literature: Fairy Tales
  • 2014 - Character Trait-based Literature: "GRIT" (Gumption, Resilience, Inner Strength and Tenacity)
  • 2015 - Theme-based Literature: Building Bridges
  • 2016 - Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead: Explorations in Science, Tech, Engineering, Art and Math
  • 2017 - The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind

For this 8th year, we have selected "The Reading Without Walls Challenge" as our district theme. Through this challenge, the hope is to expand our reading horizons and read a book outside our comfort zone. Choose a book about a character who doesn't look or live like you, or a book about a topic you don't know much about, or a book in a format that you don't normally read for fun.
During SBReads 2018, we invite students, staff and residents of all ages to find out more at this site: and please visit our district and public libraries for displays and book title ideas.
