Justin Neff served as a volunteer ESL facilitator at Berryessa Branch for a couple of years and became 2013 Volunteer of the Year for Berryessa Branch. He conducted very creative and skillful ESL sessions that helped Library patrons to learn conversational English the fast and easy way.
Unfortunately at the end of June he had to depart for Japan, where he found a job opportunity. Library customers really liked Justin's classes and gathered to tell him "Good Luck!" during the last Saturday ESL session.
Urvi Gupta, now a senior at the Harker School, has been a volunteer at the Evergreen Library since June 2012. She was nominated as 2013 Volunteer of the year for Evergreen Branch and simultaneously became a Volunteer of the Year for the whole Library System.
She created OneInMath program for kids ages K-3 and now is running this program with the help of trained teen volunteers at three San Jose Libraries. The program teaches kids basic math skills, such as addition subtraction, multiplication and division.
On June 11, 2013, Urvi received a commendation from Councilmember Rose Herrera for providing children with help to improve their math skills at three San Jose Public Library branches.

It was in the news - massive, the size of 15-story office building, asteroid DA14 nearly brushed the surface of the Earth on February 14th, 2013. Almost at the same time another meteorite (or meteoroid) unexpectedly exploded over Russia's Ural region. About 1,200 people, 200 of them children, were injured mostly by glass that exploded into schools and workplaces. Meteoroids typically cause sonic booms when they enter the Earth's atmosphere and the one over Russia shattered windows, TVs and dishes in peoples's homes. Large asteroids reflect the light of the sun, so it is easy to see them and small objects like the one that exploded over Ural are difficult to trace. Meteoroids are usually pieces of matter that have splintered off from asteroids. A meteorite is a meteoroid that reaches the surface of the Earth without being completely vaporized . To find out more about these mysteriously dangerous space objects come to the library and explore all our materials from books (digital and printed) to DVDs.
Here are some titles from our collections:
Berryessa Branch Library is offering afterschool math homework tutoring sessions on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 till 5:00 p.m. weekly.

Our wonderful volunteer Urvi Gupta, who is currently a junior at Harker School, trained a group of Evergreen and Berryessa area high school students to help her to conduct this program in both branch libraries.
The program teaches the kids to master simple addition and subtraction skills that will help them to succeed in math and science classes later on. Face-to-face tutoring and video instructions will be provided.
