The Valencia Group is pleased to announce their “Book Smart” promotion in San Antonio, TX, San Jose, CA and Houston, TX to collect books for summer literacy programs.

Any guests staying at a Valencia Group hotel, consisting of Hotel Valencia Riverwalk in San Antonio, Hotel Valencia Santana Row in San Jose, and Hotel Sorella CITYCENTRE in Houston, who bring a new book or book on tape for an overnight reservation will receive a complimentary breakfast voucher or food/beverage credit depending on the hotel property, during their stay. The collected books will be donated as prizes for the Library’s 2010 Summer Reading Programs and for the University of Texas MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital library.

The Hotel Valencia Riverwalk has participated in the promotion for the last three years and has donated over 145 books to San Antonio libraries. This will be the first year that Hotel Sorella CITYCENTRE and Hotel Valencia Santana Row will be participating.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with public libraries and the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center on these book promotions,” said Roy Kretschmer, Executive Vice President of Operations for the Valencia Group. “Literacy enrichment is at the core of developing educational astuteness in children, teens and young adults. We were eager to help in any way we could and believe that having a guest incentive will be a great way to help draw attention to the various book promotions.”
