- May 26 & 27 - All libraries CLOSED for Memorial Day
Did you know that there are easy to read books for adults at the San José Public Library? You can go to the Pearl Avenue, Santa Teresa, Evergreen, and Edenvale branch libraries to find many interesting books. Some of them are about music, including an African American ragtime musician named Blind Boone who is pictured here. Imagine what it was like to travel around the U. S. after the Civil War. This book is one example of many. There are also books about sports, hobbies, including car collecting, history, and many other subjects. Take a look and check one out. Ask library staff to help you find interesting books. While you are there, think about becoming a Partners in Reading volunteer tutor or work on your reading and writing skills. You can call (408) 808-2361 to find out more about these books or about the program.
