There are currently two cornerstone programs that operate under the BCA mission as well as a host of events that our organization supports:

Signature Program:

The Gift of Reading Morgan Hill

In partnership with the Friends of the Morgan Hill Library and the Edward Boss Prado Foundation, our Gift of Reading programs is about spreading the joy of reading during the holidays. Our book drive to collect new or like-new books to share with hundreds of children in the community is a way for anyone to become involved in the gift of literacy. Together we can all foster a love of reading.

Stop the Summer Slump:

Celebrate Summer Books for Kids

What better way to encourage reading over the summer break than by sending a brand new book home each student as an end-of-year gift? Good quality books that teach kids that reading can be for pleasure, not just for school!

Other events supported by BCA:

Special Book Events, including:

  • Harry Potter Book Night
  • May the Fourth Be with You! (Star Wars)
  • Wimpy Kid Wednesday

and other book-themed events for kids and adults.

  • Summer Concert Night(s) in the Park
    A special summer family concert night in the park.
  • Where's Waldo Local
  • Author Events
