Weber Reads is an annual community-wide reading program which provides an opportunity for people of all ages to read, reflect, and engage in conversations around a selected text or literary author. This year’s topic of the Japanese-American Internment is a part of Utah history that many people may not be familiar with. As a part of this project, each elementary and secondary school in our district received a box of books and sample lesson plans centered on the selected topic. Teachers can also make arrangements for volunteers from the library to visit their school and do a presentation. Included in this year’s collection is a variety of both narrative and informational books which promise to be engaging and informative to students of all ages. The books and lesson plans will be located in the school libraries to support teachers of all content areas throughout the year. The lesson plans include copies of primary source documents and photographs from the period. Additional information, lesson plans, a description of each of the books selected, and upcoming events that will be held at various branches of the Weber County Library are available online at the Weber Reads website: http://www.weberpl.lib.ut.us/attend/weber-reads-2016-17.
