Announcing Bookshop's new Keep Kids Reading partner: Santa Cruz Pride and the Santa Cruz County Office of Education
For the Fall 2021 Keep Kids Reading Campaign, Bookshop Santa Cruz is partnering with Santa Cruz Pride and the Santa Cruz County Office of Education to bring LGBTQ+ books into local public schools. Donate to Keep Kids Reading and the money will be used to purchase books featuring LGBTQ+ authors and lived experiences at a discount to populate growing sections in local public school libraries.

ABOUT OUR KEEP KIDS READING FUNDRAISER:
We want to put books in the hands of local kids. That’s why Bookshop works with schools, nonprofits and organizations to bring the books directly to the kids who need them the most—but we need your help to do so!
Since we began our fundraising efforts at the beginning of the shutdown, you have put $35,000 worth of books in the hands of local young readers, which have been distributed by Santa Cruz County schools, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Cruz County, Fuerza Latinx, and the Walls to Bridges Book Project. (Read more about this special project that provides books to system-impacted children here.) THANK YOU!
By contributing to our Keep Kids Reading Fundraiser, you will not only be putting books into the hands of children but also be helping Bookshop Santa Cruz. The purchase of these books will help keep our booksellers employed, and help sustain the store during this challenging time. Thank you so much!
