Summer Reading Program set to “Build a Better World”

SRP bannerIt’s almost time. The hometown libraries of the Pioneer Library System are all geared up for the annual Summer Reading Program, the busiest time of the year.

This year, Summer Reading explores ways to “Build a Better World” through a variety of programs that build community, inspiration and in some cases, help participants build actual things.

The Newcastle Public Library is getting the summer started with its Summer Reading Kickoff event, from noon to 2 p.m. Friday, May 26. In addition to being a chance to set reading goals for the summer, the event also will include several stations equipped with a variety of building materials for experiments.

Activities are planned throughout June and July for children, teens and adults, as well as several intergenerational events for all ages.

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., the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Oklahoma Arts Council, Oklahoma College Savings Plan, Pioneer Library System, Pioneer Library System Foundation, SONIC, the Oklahoma Department of Libraries and The Oklahoman Newspapers in Education.
