Supervillains are taking over the library for an afternoon

The Oklahoma Museum Network is becoming as much a part of the Pioneer Library System’s Summer Reading Program as great books and reading goals.

The Outreach wing of the multi-museum network primarily offers programs generated by Science Museum Oklahoma. Each year they combine science and reading in a way where participants are able to have fun and, before they know it, learn something that could be useful for them down the road in school.

The Southwest Oklahoma City Public Library welcomes the museum network for the teen program “The Science of Supervillains,” at 2 p.m. Monday, June 8, at the library.
