Washington Reads: Selections from the State Librarian

Jan Walsh, Washington's State Librarian, creates a quarterly list of reading suggestions for Washington residents called Washington Reads. The topic for Spring 2007 was "Hidden People" and "features some unusual books that bring light and exposure to what is so often invisible. These books put people and personalities to the labels that they have been given and bring to life the hidden people."

Previous topics have included Diversity, Courage, the Olympic Peninsula, the Tastes of Washington, the Oregon Trail, the Geology of Washington, etc. The suggested readings cover all age ranges from children to adults.

Washington Reads was started in Fall 2003 on the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the State Library's first books. Chosen books are related to Washington life. Two copies of each book will be available for check-out from the Washington State Library and other libraries in the state. The GRCC library may have some of the books. If your local library doesn’t own a book, you can request it through interlibrary loan.
