Thanks & don't forget your Book Bucks!

We are wagging our tails for all those who have helped us make the Paws to Read 2014 summer reading program a great success! Kids who completed the program logged a total of 29,530 hours of reading and earned as many Book Bucks as incentives!

Did you participate? Don't forget to spend your Book Bucks at participating businesses by September 30th! Bring your reading log with you to verify participation. (Wondering where to spend your Book Bucks? Check the back of your reading log, or here's an online list.)

Did you win something in the teen raffle? Don't forget to pick up your prize!

Please do THANK our generous participating businesses; the items you "purchase" with Book Bucks or won in the raffle were donated to support reading and learning in Santa Cruz!
