Summer Reading Club Online Registration

We're counting down to June 6! That's the day when our 2009 Summer Reading Club registration will be LIVE and ONLINE, through our Santa Clara City Library website. We're saying "good-bye" to the papers and pencils that have been part of the Summer Reading Club landscape in previous years. You'll be able to reigister from your computer at home, at the terminals in the Library, or at any other location where your have access to the Internet.

You'll just need to access our Santa Clara City Library website and follow the prompts on the front page. You'll be directed to registration forms for children or teens. Fill in the required information, click on the "done" button, and your child will be registered in the program and ready to begin reading. You'll be able to print your child's reading log sheet, or you may get one from the Library Youth Services desk. Teen Read participants will be picking up their packets from the Youth Services desk.

Before you begin the registration process, you'll need to be ready to provide some basic information:
  1. My child's library card number. Children will need to have a valid Santa Clara City Library card.

  2. Child's grade in SEPTEMBER. You will need to list the grade your child will be ENTERING IN SEPTEMBER, as well as the name of the school that he or she will be attending. Children who will be entering Kindergarten through 6th grade in September register in the children's program. Students who will be entering 7th through 12 grade register in the Teen Read program. Preschool children, plus those who are too young to attend school, also register in the children's program.

Mark your calendars for our Summer Reading Club Kickoff Celebration outside the Central Park Library, from 1 to 4 p.m., Saturday, June 6.
