Summer Reading


Reading By Design

The 2017 Summer Reading Program begins June 1st!
Reading by Design is a summer library program for everyone. Little ones through kids age 17 may register to read or listen and earn Book Books to spend at participating businesses. Adults 18 and older may play LIBRARY BINGO for a chance at some great raffle prizes!

Sign-ups begin June 1st online at:
or in person at any Branch Library

Earn Book Bucks!
One hour of reading = 1 Book Buck. You can earn up to 20 Book Bucks. Track your reading time by filling in the circles on your Reading Log. When you’ve read as much as you’d like, collect your Book Bucks by bringing your Reading Log to any SCPL branch library by August 18.

Collect your Book Bucks at any Branch Library by August 18th

Spend Your Book Bucks!
Santa Cruz County businesses that will honor your Book Bucks are listed on the back of your Reading Log. Please bring your Reading Log and Book Bucks to the store with you when you shop so the merchant can see your participation and record what you spend. And, please thank our generous local businesses who support reading and learning by donating the goods and services you ‘purchase’ with your Book Bucks. It is through their generosity that this incentive program is possible.

Book Bucks EXPIRE on Saturday, September 30, 2017.

Or Enter the Raffle with your Bucks!
1 Book Buck = 1 Raffle Ticket. Trade in your Book Bucks for the chance to win great prizes donated by local businesses. The raffle is open to ALL participants in the Summer Reading Program. Winners will be drawn the third week of August. No need to be present, we will contact the winners. Enter the raffle at any branch library when you collect your book bucks by August 18.
