Summer @ Your Library: Week One by Stacy


We are so excited that summer reading time is finally here!  Each week the library will offer fun, free programs and challenging reading club activities to fill up the whole summer! 

The first program takes place Tuesday, June 4 at 10 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.  Participants will become part of the Oklahoma Science Museum’s dynamic program about the elemental forces that shape our planet.  Kids and parents will experience the exciting science behind volcanoes, geysers, and earthquakes.

 These OK Science Museum programs are always very high quality, interactive and bunches of fun!

One thing we want to stress this summer is that seating is limited to 300 people at each children’s performance.  We urge you to come at least 15 minutes early and to consider attending the 3:30 p.m. performance which typically has fewer attendees. 

On Wednesday, June 5 at 2 p.m., the Teen program kicks off with “How to Survive an Apocalypse” inspired by the novel “Catching Fire” by Suzanne Collins.   Young adults going into grades 6-12 will participate in challenges like making a shelter, constructing items with duct tape, putting together a survival cache, survival trivia and more!  

We’re really hoping young adults will make it their goal to read more than twenty hours this summer, so we are once again making the stakes high!  Reading cards submitted after the twenty hour card will count double in our end of the year drawings for two Kindle Fires!


We finish out the week on Thursday, June 6 at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., when families can enjoy popcorn and fun at our first “Summer Cinema” of the year.  We’ll be showing an animated, Rated G movie about neighboring gnome families who are at war with each other, but two of the gnomes are in love.  Can their love last?
