Encouraging our children to read books is a great way to stimulate their growing minds and combat summer learning loss while they're home from school! The Berkeley Heights YMCA is hosting a Virtual Scholastic Book Fair featuring a large assortment of books for children ages preschool through sixth grade.
For every purchase from the Book Fair, Scholastic will give back 25% in rewards to the Berkeley Heights YMCA and will allow us to buy new books, games and activities for this school year.
The Book Fair will take place from Monday, July 11 - Sunday, July 24
This event is open to the community.
- Find books of special interest to them or take them to a library/bookstore and have them choose their own books.
- Provide special incentives for completing a book or even a chapter.
- Designate a special time during the day for family reading time where everyone reads together.

In 1886, we were founded as the Young Men's Christian Association, but today, we are The Y. An association that values, and is made stronger by, its diverse people. We stand for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility — For a better us. We are committed to creating equal opportunity for all regardless of gender, age, disability, income, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religious affiliation. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive culture in which our four core values — responsibility, honesty, caring and respect — are integral to everyday operations.
Each year, as one of the area’s leading 501(c)3 charitable organizations, the Summit Area YMCA serves more than 15,000 individuals with our free and fee-based programs and services in an area spanning the New Jersey communities of Berkeley Heights, Gillette, Millburn, New Providence, Short Hills, Springfield, Stirling and Summit. Our history is rooted in working side-by-side with our neighbors to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Through the generosity of our members, donors, and partners, we are able to offer financial assistance for our programs and services to those in need.
