This is fantastic! Do you deliver the boxes just once, or once per week?

We will delivering them every other week. They P-12 boxes have 2 books in them, so they will cover that time. Anyone who signs up will get 4 boxes total over the summer.

Do the participants return the books at some point or are they theirs to keep?

We ordered them fairly cheaply so the participants can keep them. We've done something similar before with summer reading. A few years ago we got a bulk order and put a book in every SRP bag. That batch came from Scholastic. Of course that was when the participants were coming to us. We don't really see that happening this year, so we'll be taking the boxes to them. Currently, we have about a 50/50 split for pickup and delivery.
