Over the past 5 years, Bookshop’s Holiday Book Drive has raised $24,000 worth of books for local public school libraries!
Public donates $9,100 in new books to schools
Santa Cruz City Schools’ librarians would like to express our gratitude for the generous donations of beautiful, brand-new books to our schools.
During Bookshop Santa Cruz’s fifth annual Holiday Book Drive, customers donated over $9,100 in books to local public schools. We appreciate the co-sponsorships of Good Times and The Santa Cruz Warriors in helping The Santa Cruz Education Foundation and Bookshop Santa Cruz make this year’s drive such a success!
This year’s donations were the highest of any year of the Book Drive, exceeding last year’s donations by more than 32 percent. We were thrilled to open boxes of current, popular, age-appropriate books that our students will love.
