Partnership with Bookshop Santa Cruz yields over $4,800 in books and gifts

The annual Holiday Book Drive, a partnership between Bookshop Santa Cruz, the Santa Cruz Education Foundation and Santa Cruz City Schools libraries, was again a success. This year, community members donated more that $4,800 in books and gift cards to our school libraries. In addition to the libraries of Santa Cruz City Schools, the drive benefited libraries in the Pajaro Valley and Scotts Valley school districts.

In January, we proudly delivered the books and gift cards to a gathering of our grateful school librarians.
