Book discussion with Penn Ave Literary Society

Do you enjoy reading and discussing your ideas about literary works with other bookworms? Visit the Southwest Oklahoma City Public Library to come together with people who share similar interests!

This month, the Penn Ave Literary Society will be discussing Blue Asylum by Kathy Hepinstall, which is a novel set during the time of the Civil War. The historical romance explores the topics of human rights, property, cruelty, and insanity during an unfortunate time of turmoil.

If this sounds like an interesting experience to you, the books for the discussion can be picked up at the Information Services Desk and returned at the book discussion. We would love for you to join this thoughtful and reflective space!

Minecraft Club at the library

Kids can now play minecraft at your hometown library! Stop by the Southwest Oklahoma City Public Library to fight incredible monsters, build cool structures, and explore your own creativity.

The library is inviting children between the ages of 8 and 12 to enjoy the game for free. Each child will be provided access to a MinecraftEDU account during the program. It will also take place in a safer environment because play will happen on a closed-network multiplayer server.
