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 email@example.com.
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!

The San Jose Public Library's Summer Reading Celebration kicks off today and children and teens can sign up for their respective programs at any branch. But summer reading is not just a kids' activity! Adults can sign up too. If you have children perhaps you'd like to sign up for summer reading along with them and make the experience a family affair, but no kids are required for adult summer reading fun!
Partipants in the adult summer reading program can entered biweekly drawings for the following prizes:
If you register at your local branch, staff will give you an activity card, or if you sign up online you can print your own activity card. Complete five activities in a row (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) and return it to the library in time to be entered into each biweekly drawing. Most importantly, have a great time reading!
Summer Reading Celebration will begin June 1, 2013. Sign-up online or at your local library. Read and do literacy activities on the log between June 1 - July 31 to claim prizes at your local library in San Jose.

Bored of reading the same high school drama stories over and over again? Tired of reading about the normal and natural things in life? Well then, why not read about the supernatural? You see, Kaylee thought she was living a normal life too, but then one little hidden detail in her life changes everything. Kaylee was fine when all she had to worry about was school and boys, now she has a family lineage and a superpower (if you can even call it that) to worry about too. If that’s isn't enough, kids start dropping dead at her high school, and she's the only person who can stop the murderer.
