Surprised students receive gift of reading

On April 23, book lovers around the world shared their love of reading by giving away books. This day was celebrated in a unique way at the Santa Cruz City Schools Branciforte Small Schools Campus. Librarian Jolene Kemos surprised the students of Costanoa, AFE, Ark and Monarch by randomly giving away 20 copies of John Green’s “Looking for Alaska”.

It was a literary sneak attack!

They asked, ‘why me?

The response: ‘because you are so amazing, thoughtful and smart, and you deserve a treat.’
