Make and Take an apple pie for the holiday table

Norman Public Library Central invites local teens to its annual pre-Thanksgiving activity, Apple Pie 101, scheduled at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 21.

Participants will put together all the ingredients for an apple pie using supplies provided by the library. They’ll then be able to take their completed pie home to put in the oven and bake in time for the family’s Thanksgiving meal.

The program is for students in sixth through 12th grades. Supplies are limited so registration is required.

All supplies have been provided thanks to support from the Friends of the Norman Libraries.
