The Read Write Discover program located at the Biblioteca Latinoamericana still has a few openings for children entering grades 1-8. If you are interested in signing up your child or children, please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Read Write Discover is a summer community program that takes place in the Community Room at Biblioteca Latinoamericana. High school volunteers tutor children entering 1st through 8th grades on Mondays and Tuesdays from 11:00 AM until 12:30 PM during June and July. Tutors assign various projects with the students, including writing assignments, tests, vocabulary projects, arts and crafts, Reader's Theater, discussions, and more. Most importantly, the tutors read with the children and help them with comprehension. Tutors will assign reading assignments and written assignments which will be recorded on your child's Homework Calendar.
The team of tutors makes learning fun! There will be several Read Write Discover projects for our students throughout the program. Parents are invited to our end of the program performance (August 5) and awards ceremony (August 6.)
Read Write Discover is not a drop in program. Tutors strive to work with the students to build their reading skills and a relationship with them, so it is important for the students to come to the sessions on a regular basis.
Is your child struggling with reading or writing? Free help is available this summer from Read Write Discover (RWD), a literacy tutoring program at the library. This free program targets students who are struggling or whose families face language barriers in their communities. High school students are trained to tutor youth in grades 1-8 on reading and writing skills. The session begins with a family orientation, and tutors work with the same learners every week.
The tutoring program will be held at Bascom on:
Wednesdays & Thursdays, June 19 – August 1 from 4:00-5:30 PM.
Children must be registered to attend and space is limited, so sign up early!

San Jose Public Library’s annual Summer Reading Celebration (SRC) promises to be more fun than ever this year, with the introduction of a Bingo-style activity grid in place of the traditional reading log. As always, kids will have lots of incentives to read books of their choice - a proven way to help prevent learning loss during the summer months. The activity grid will additionally reward participants for other literacy related activities, such as attending library programs.
Special SRC programs will be held at all library branches throughout the summer. For children, these include many activities related to this year’s "Dig Into Reading" theme - for instance, we’ll be planting seeds, creating fossil art, making hedgehogs, and decorating pet rocks! Libraries will also offer a variety of free performances for families including the Fratello Marionettes, magician Dan Chan, singer/songwriter Peter Apel, and many others. We’ll also have our annual Graphic Novel Contest, Teen Book Trailer Contest, and special SRC Kick-Off Event on June 2. Check out sjpl.org/summer for more information about Summer Reading events and activities.
Separate activity grids are available for pre-readers, readers, teens, and adults, giving everyone a chance to participate and win prizes. Prizes include toys for the kids, free books, entries in drawings for gift cards, and even an iPad Mini! Beginning June 1, you can pick up an activity grid at any SJPL location or print one online. Get ready to play!
