Dear Parents and Students,
Joliet Township High School requires all students to participate in a Summer Reading Program to keep their minds active during the summer months.
This summer we ask students to read any book or publication of their choice and to document the number of pages using the Joliet Public Library Individual Readers Log.
Joliet Township High School’s partnership with the Joliet Public Library allows all JTHS students to participate in the JPL Summer Reading Challenge to receive awards and incentives. Students do not need a library card to participate.
While students can read any book or publication of their choice, sometimes students need help finding interesting books to read. Our teachers and librarians have compiled a list of “2021 Highly Recommended Reads.” The books on this list are available for students to check out at the Central Main Entrance and West Main Office Monday – Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The books are also available at the Joliet Public Library and no card is necessary for check out.
The links provided below include resources to help your student get started with their summer reading:

It is crucial to us that students have access to books they will enjoy reading throughout the summer. If you are unable to find a copy of a book that your student enjoys reading, please contact the Central or West Principal and he or she will personally make sure you have access to a copy of a “Highly Recommended Read” or other high-interest reading material.
Mr. Shad Hallihan & Dr. Teresa Gibson
