Summer Reading Program Rewards
Encouraging your student to read over the summer can seem daunting; fortunately, Bookshop Santa Cruz has a great Summer Reading Program to help inspire your students to read over the summer break. To participate, your students need a bookmark that can be downloaded from or picked up at Bookshop Santa Cruz. After each student reads 6 books, three from the bookmark and three of their own choice, they receive a $5 gift card from Bookshop, a scoop of ice cream from Penny Ice Creamery, a slice of pizza from Pizza My Heart as well as a great prize from the Santa Cruz Warriors. It is absolutely free to participate, you are not required to purchase any of the books from Bookshop. On top of helping encourage students to read over the summer, your school can win great prizes if they have the most students participate! Bookshop gives a gift card to the school librarian for the top participating small school and top participating large school. For more information, please contact our awesome librarian, Madeline Britton.
