According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), it's not too late to protect yourself from the flu!
The National Influenza Vaccination Week (December 8–14, 2013) was created to spread awareness about the importance of getting a flu vaccine, especially for those younger than five years old and older than 65. The CDC still recommends that everyone get a flu vaccine--it's NOT too late if you have not received a flu shot yet. They recommend that people continue to get vaccinated through December, January and beyond.
For a list of other publications and PSA's, see the CDC website.

Practice speaking English!
Did you know that many of the San Jose Public Library branches provide an opportunity once a week to practice speaking English in an informal setting?
It’s called the ESL Conversation Club!
Every week, a devoted volunteer will facilitate a discussion in English in a non-intimidating and stress-free environment. The goal is to help each other gain confidence speaking English while having a good time. No sign up is required, so please drop in at any of our meeting times.
Looking for other meeting times?
Please check our calendar for additional meeting times at various branches.
Looking for more ESL help?
The San Jose Public Library has a wide variety of materials (including books, DVDs and CD sets), to supplement participation in the ESL Conversation Club. Below are just a few of the many materials available for anyone who is learning how to become a confident English speaker (Click on the photos below to view the item in our catalog):
If you are looking to improve your English at work, the SJPL owns this great set of DVDs called EASY at work. It is a 15 volume set, each with a different area of focus. For example, disc 11 is about Retail Sales and disc 7 is about Job Interview Skills.
For additional materials, please see our catalog, or ask a librarian for help!
