SALT LAKE CITY — Woodrow Wilson Elementary School students try to get a peek at Santa Claus during an assembly at the Salt Lake City school on Thursday.

Santa was joined at the assembly by KSL-TV's Deanie Wimmer to tell the students that almost 2,000 books have been provided for a new school library as part of Read Today, a high-impact literacy program sponsored by Deseret Media Companies.

Read Today teamed up with Security Service Federal Credit Union, The Larry H. Miller Foundation and United Way of Salt Lake to provide the books. Currently the school's library is filled with books from the 1960s and '70s.
