Kick off Summer Reading Program with a big day at the library

SRP logoSummer is almost here, and that means the annual Summer Reading Program bringing a jolt of activity to the community through the activities of the Noble Public Library.

This year’s theme, “Libraries Rock!” is giving a chance to explore literal rocks with the Museum of Osteology or PLS Maker Mobile staff to “rocking” with music and art programs led by a variety of local performers.

Begin the summer with the library’s Family Fun Friday: Summer Reading Kickoff, from 10 a.m. to noon Friday, June 1, at the library. The event features several games and an opportunity to win prizes, as well as a chance to sign up for SRP and start working toward a reading goal and free book.

Summer programs get started in earnest in early June with programs lasting to early August.

Sponsors for this year’s Summer Reading Program are the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation, Friends of the Library groups, Hitachi Computer Products of America Inc., Institute of Museum and Library Services, Oklahoma College Savings Plan, the Pioneer Library System, Pioneer Library System Foundation, Sonic – America’s Drive-In, Corp., the Oklahoma Department of Libraries and the Oklahoman Newspapers in Education.
