Dream Big! Read! sets tone for Summer Reading Program at the Library

Dream Big! Read! is the theme for this year’s Summer Reading Program at the Library

The annual Summer Reading Program at Chickasha Public Library will run through June and July.  Every Thursday at 10 a.m., children ages 6 – 11 are invited to come to hear stories read by Miss Lillie and to hear about lots of great books for them to read and to have lots of fun.  There will be various activities such as crafts and games.

Also on Thursdays in the afternoon are programs for children ages 9 – 11.  Boys at 3 p.m. and Girls at 4 p.m. at these programs there is more detailed discussions of books.

Sign-up for the program is on May 31st from 10:00 – 6:00 parents/caregivers and children may come to the Library anytime to sign-up for the program and make reservations for the special performers and to gather useful information about the program.  There will be games for the kids to play.  Signing up is not required.   More information is available by calling the Library 222-6075.

Our special performers this summer are John Pansze Magician and the OKZoo Mobile.  Both of these events require reservations due to limited seating.

“Our goal through this program is to keep kids’ reading skills sharp when they are not in school.  Kid’s that read during school vacations do better in school.  Let’s keep kids reading it’s great fun,” says Lillie Huckaby, Children’s Librarian. Children are encouraged to set reading goals for themselves for the summer.

This is a great activity for when guests come to visit – grandchildren, cousins, or friends.

We also have programs for younger children.  On Wednesdays children ages five or six and younger can come with their caregivers and enjoy storytime at 10 or 11 a.m..

Both programs are FREE.
