After the last firecracker fizzles out and the heat index rises, many are on the hunt for cool summer activities.
The Chickasha Public Library will be hosting several programs in July geared towards all ages—children to seniors. All activities will take place at the Chickasha Public Library located at 527 W. Iowa Ave. in Chickasha.
The free Youth Summer Reading Program will continue every Thursday. Registration is not required. Children ages six to 11 may attend an hour long session at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. Children 10 years and older may attend the 4 p.m. program.

Chapter Chat is a book discussion group that meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 6 p.m. In July, Chapter Chat will meet on July 30 to discuss Little Women.
