Summer Fun for Kids


Bookshop's Summer Reading Program

Our popular summer reading program for young readers (going into grades K-12) runs through September 6th. Kids who read 6 books—at least 3 from our recommended reading lists and up to 3 of their choice—not only get to read terrific books, but earn excellent rewards!




Where's Waldo? In downtown Santa Cruz!

During the entire month of July, the famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting local businesses throughout our community. Pick up a Where's Waldo passport and collect stamps whenever you spot the striped guy at participating shops. You can win great prizes!




Bookshop's Young Writers Contest

Bookshop Santa Cruz celebrates the talents of young writers in our community with an annual contest designed for writers ages 6–17.
