Reading Makes Cent$


“Bankers are a lot more than just numbers.”

—  Chris Oddleifson President and CEO of Rockland Trust

Reading Makes Cent$ is our bank-wide summer reading program that encourages children to read during the summer, while learning the value of saving through the opening of a savings account. 

Children read their favorite books all summer and receive $2.50 in a Rockland Trust savings account for each book read (up to 10 books). Kids earn credit by handing in their reading journals with completed summer reading to a Rockland Trust branch.


This year, we had nearly 1,500 students participate, reading more than 13,000 books! Great job!
