Holiday Book Drive

Local public school libraries always count on new books from Bookshop’s annual Holiday Book Drive to increase and update their collections, but between Covid-19 and the recent wildfires, they need our help more than ever. Many books that were checked out never made it back to schools, so libraries’ inventories are low while the need for books is high.
"Our school library lost many books in our collection in the spring when students were not allowed on campus even to return books. Many 8th graders moved on to the high school and students moved away without having the usual process to return books at the end of the school year." —Martha Dyer, Librarian, Mission Hill Middle School
Donations in any amount are so appreciated!
Donations will be distributed by Santa Cruz City Schools, Pajaro Valley Unified School District, Live Oak School District, and Scotts Valley Unified School District.
Bookshop's Holiday Book Drive is cosponsored by the Santa Cruz Warriors and the Good Times. You can contribute by making a monetary donation to school libraries and classrooms, or specific books at a discount to donate. Our book drive will run online and in-store through December 31st. 
Win an autographed Steph Curry photo!

"Your donation to Bookshop Santa Cruz's Holiday Book Drive helps get books into kids' hands and get them excited about reading."
—Sheryl Anderson, Librarian, Shoreline Middle School
Our public schools can most use monetary donations so that their librarians and teachers have the greatest flexibility in acquiring the books they need. However, if you would prefer to donate a specific book to our local schools, you can receive 20% OFF books purchased for the Holiday Book Drive through December 31st. Use the coupon code DONATE in the Shopping Cart screen to apply the 20% discount to all of your book donations. .
