Kick off Summer Reading with activities

SRP106The Summer Reading Program brings thousands of readers into the hometown libraries of the Pioneer Library System, and this year’s activities once again provide opportunities for all ages to experience the library.

Norman Public Library West gets its Summer Reading Program festivities started with an afternoon and early evening of activities at its SRP Kickoff Party, from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, May 27, at the library.

This year’s Summer Reading Program takes a look at exercise, not just of body but of mind as well, as both mental and physical activity are featured for those who come inside the library. The themes for SRP in 2016 are “On Your Mark, Get Set, Read! for children; “Get in the Game: Readfor teens and “Exercise Your Mind. Read!for adults.

A slate of performers will tour throughout the 11 hometown libraries in the system, and activities are set nearly every day as SRP hits its peak during June and the first part of July.
