MHMS Library: Something for Everyone

Our popular summer reading program for young readers (going into grades K-12) has begun! Click on the links under the book covers below to see the 10 program books for each age group.

We will are challenging kids to read 6 books—at least 3 from our recommended reading list and up to 3 of their choice. Complete the challenge and not only will you have read some terrific books, but you'll earn excellent rewards: A $5 Bookshop gift card, a free scoop from the Penny Ice Creamery, a free slice from Pizza My Heart, a special prize from the Santa Cruz Warriors, and an activity book from the Coastal Watershed Council.

How to get started: Stop by Bookshop Santa Cruz to see the books and pick up the summer reading bookmark for your age level. You can also order books online and we will include the bookmark with your shipment or when you pick up your order curbside or in the store. You can also download and print the bookmarks via the pdfs below. Hang on to your bookmark because it's also your reading tracking form that you're going to use all summer and turn back into us before school starts. Pick out your first book and start reading!
