Are you ready for SUMMER?

We are! And we have a lot planned for you this summer. Below are some highlights:

  • As it has for the past thirty-one years, this year’s Summer Reading Program – that’s SRP from now on – will start with a Turtle Race for ages 4 – 12! That will be on June the 4th, at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. New this year is the parade of turtles, but don’t worry: you don’t have to teach your turtle to walk on a leash (we’ve talked to some turtles and they are very against being walked on a leash.) Instead, bring your child’s trike, bicycle, wagon, or anything else on wheels (non-motorized, please). Decorations optional but encouraged! And of course, bring your turtles – just make sure they’re not snapping turtles, since we want to keep everyone’s fingers intact.
  • Through the rest of June and July, we’ll be offering special SRP performances every Tuesday at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. We’ve invited magicians and storytellers and puppeteers and so many others … you’ll just have to show up to see everything we have in store!
  • For those already signed up for the Bulldogger’s Club (registration is already closed for this, sorry), they will meet every Monday (starting May 30th) at 2:00 pm for read-alouds from the book The Bulldogger’s Club by Barbara Hay and related events.
  • For ages 12-17, make plans to join our Teen SRP and check back here for more details on how to get chances to win a Kindle Fire or an iPod Shuffle. We’ll also be offering some exciting teen programs on Thursdays in July – again, check back soon for more information!
  • And for the littlest guys, our 10:00 am Wednesday Toddler Storytime continues throughout the summer.

We hope to see you all many, many times throughout the summer!

Special Programs @ Your Library

The holiday season is coming, and we have the programs to prove it!

We’re starting things off with a Spooky Storytime on October 31 at 5:00 pm. Bring the kids – costumes encouraged – for some scary (but not too scary) stories, monstrously delicious snacks, and creepy crafts.

Next up is Cards and Cookies with Carolyn on November 10 at 7:00 pm. Get a head start on those holiday cards and benefit from the creative inspiration of our resident card-making guru Carolyn. There will be card kits available for a small fee to cover supplies, and the class size is limited to 15 – so sign up now to reserve your spot! You can call us at 918-825-0777, comment here, or notify us on Facebook.

Then on November 28 at 7:00 pm  we have Beginning Jewelry Making. Handmade jewelry is the perfect gift for mothers, daughters, friends … or any special lady in your life. Jewelry kits will be available starting at $10, and again, class size is limited to 15, so sign up early.

Finally, on December 8 at 7:00 pm we’ll be hosting a Cookie Exchange. You must have an invitation to attend, but one is easy to get – just tell us you want to be invited! Bring two dozen cookies (and the recipe), and you’ll leave with two dozen cookies in all sorts of flavors. There will be a prize for the ugliest Christmas sweater, so dig out your tackiest holiday-themed clothing and wear it with pride.
