Summer Reading Programs

  • Bookshop Santa Cruz
    • Bookshop Santa Cruz’s popular summer reading program for young readers (going into grades K-12) will run June 1st through September 5th this year. They’re challenging kids to read 6 books–at least 3 from their recommended reading list (see link above) and up to 3 of their choice. Complete the challenge and not only will you have read some terrific books, but you’ll earn excellent rewards: A $5 Bookshop gift card, a free scoop from the Penny Ice Creamery, a free slice from Pizza My Heart, and a special prize from the Santa Cruz Warriors!
  • City of Santa Cruz Reading Programs
    • Reading programs designed and taught by instructors from the Institute of Reading Development. Programs have been offered as a community service by the City of Santa Cruz Parks and Recreation Department since 1988.
