Summer Reading Program


Teens up to 18 years old are invited to participate. Register online:

  • Please fill out form completely.
  • Be sure your name is spelled correctly before you click on [SIGN UP FOR SUMMER READING!]
  • Write down your Summer Reading # so you can put it in your Reading Log.

Pick up your Reading Log at any Santa Cruz Public Libraries Branch or the Bookmobile.


**Read! Fill in circles on your Reading Log to keep track of the time.

** Check online calendar for programs.

** Write book reviews and 6-Word Memoirs for our website.


You get one SR DOLLAR for each hour you read up to $20.

To collect SR Dollars, you must bring your Reading Log to any SCPL library by Sunday, July 29th.

You may complete the program only once.


On the back page of your Reading Log are merchants who will honor SR Dollars (worth $1 each in merchandise.) You can also view the merchant list online.

You must bring your reading log and SR Dollars to the store when shopping.

The last day to spend your dollars at participating merchants is Sunday, September 30th.


You can trade all or some of your SR Dollars for the chance to win great prizes donated by local merchants. 1 SR dollar = 1 raffle entry

If you wish to use some or all of your dollars on raffle tickets, write your NAME, SRP# and PHONE NUMBER on each dollar. Give them to library staff. You MUST be 12 to 18 years old to participate in the raffle.

Winners will be drawn by the Advisory Council of Teens on Sunday, August 11th from at the Downtown Library. You do not need to be present to win, so information must be legible.


On Sunday, July 28th only, you can bring your reading log to the book sale and receive a free book.
