Hello, The children's

Hello, The children's program works a bit differently from the other program. Once each of your child has registered online, you should see some text in the middle of the page that says "Congratulations! You are now registered for the San Jose Public Library’s Summer Reading Celebration. Please click here to print your reading log. " What you will need to do is click on the word "here" and then a PDF will pop up for you to print out. The PDF is a Reading Log and includes instructions on how the children's program works. Once you have printed out a Reading Log for each child, your children can keep track of the books they read on their respective logs. You and your children can visit any San Jose Public Library branch to pick up prizes, starting when they have read 5 books. Hope you find this helpful!
