Purcell Public Library
It’s that time of year again, as the Purcell Public Library welcomes families to take part in its annual Summer Reading program.
Things will get started with a kickoff event at 10 a.m. Friday, May 31, at the library, 919 N. Ninth St.
Many activities will be featured, including a dirt painting program led by Karla Beatty of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission.
It’s also the first chance a chance to sign up for this year’s Summer Reading Challenge, with those who sign up receiving a free book, snow cone and a bag of other goodies. Also, information on the schedule of programs taking place throughout the summer will be available.
This year’s SRP themes are:
Children – “Dig Into Reading”
Teens – “Beneath the Surface”
Adults – “Groundbreaking Reads”
One again, the library goes on the road for programming at Byars Elementary School and the Wayne Community Center. SRP kickoff events are planned at 10:30 a.m. Monday, June 3, in Byars and at 1 p.m. Friday, June 7, in Wayne.
This year’s Summer Reading Program is presented with the support of the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Oklahoma Arts Council, Hitachi Computer Products of America, The Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation, Sonic, Kirkpatrick Family Fund, the Pioneer Library System Foundation and Friends of the Library groups throughout the Pioneer Library System.
