The beginning of October brings All Pueblo Reads (APR), an event where one book is chosen for Pueblo to collectively read. This year’s book is The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien, an emotional book about the soldier’s struggles throughout the Vietnam War. The Youth Companion book is What was the Vietnam War? by Jim O’Connor.
In addition to reading these books, the library is also offering free corresponding Learning Activities which can be used as part of your History Curriculum! These Learning Activities are broken down by grade level and include:
Follow along with a virtual Vietnamese Storytime on Friday, October 16th at 11 am. From now until the 18th of October, you can also pick up a Vietnamese paper-craft at any of the library’s branches.
