WINTER COLD GETTING YOU DOWN?
CAN’T GET OUT AND DRIVE ABOUT TOWN?
I KNOW SOMETHING YOU CAN DO—
WINTER READING IS THE THING FOR YOU!
Winter Reading started on December 7, 2023 and goes until January 8, 2024!
Sign up on Beanstack.com or go to any San Jose Public Library (SJPL) location! Note: you do NOT need to be a member of SJPL to enter!
WE’VE GOT GREAT GIVEAWAY PRIZES
NO MATTER WHAT YOUR SIZE IS!
For anyone who signs up, young or old, we have giveaway prizes. Adults get a tote bag (and who doesn't need a tote bag?) while supplies last and children 0-18 get either a bookmark craft kit or a novelty pen. AND all children 0-18 get a free book!
AN EXTRA GIVEAWAY IS A GO
IF CAN YOU CAN SPELL B-I-N-G-O
Youth ages 0-18 can fill out ONE of the five bingo cards (below) for the chance for an extra giveaway prize! Select activities on the card to get a BINGO in any direction and then take their winning card to any SJPL location for either one of the giveaway prizes (while supplies last). Download one of the BINGO cards: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5
WINTER READING ISN’T A CHORE
WHEN YOUR MAGIC NUMBER IS FOUR!
That’s right! All you need to do to enter for the grand prize drawing is either four hours of reading, or reading just four books. Make yourself some hot chocolate or hot cider, get some chocolate, and enjoy some time out of the cold as you curl up with a book from the library. It doesn’t take much to enter for the grand prize drawing!
JUST BEFORE THE TEMPERATURE RISES,
I’D LIKE TO PRESENT SOME REALLY GREAT PRIZES!

More fun than even caroling

But we’ll be back, never fear!
