Two new components of the Metropolitan Library’s Summer Reading program give participants the options to Read It Forward and pay it forward. Historically, the program offers the benefits of reading, reaching goals, attending entertaining and educational events and earning incentives and drawing prizes, but now readers can do good deeds too.
The Metropolitan Library System will be closed Friday, July 3, and Saturday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day.
Regular service hours will resume Sunday, July 5.
The creation of art is not limited to humans. Animals can create too! A traveling exhibit featuring animal artists is temporarily housed in the Downtown Library’s atrium. This unique exhibit features nine original pieces of artwork by Oklahoma City Zoo animals.
Summer at the library isn’t just for kids anymore. Adults now have their own reading program and the chance to take a break at interesting events like Adventures in the World of Mythology. Science Museum Oklahoma opens up a discussion about the gods, heroes and monsters of old at three libraries this summer. Explore the ancient lore that continues to engage imaginations.
Like it or not, computers are here to stay. They can make life easier, but getting started can be difficult. Edmond Library has a way to help make computer use anxiety free. They are offering a series of classes and question and answer sessions to help increase computer skills in the community.
