Summer reading has arrived!

Public libraries throughout Oklahoma will be the place to go for the 2006 Summer Reading adventure at their public library during June and July.

Grade school children may join any time during the program dates and participate by reading books and attending storytimes and other special activities.

Summer readers will receive a Read-Team reading log, colorful book bags, stickers, and sports cards as part of the program’s activities.

Every summer public libraries become the focal point for many children looking for programs and activities to fill their free summer days. Books can take us anywhere in the universe using our most precious vehicle, imagination.

Some libraries sponsor reading contests, and award prizes to children who meet their designated reading goals. Others have special programs for preschoolers and teen readers.

Most libraries hold storytimes and craft activities, with parents and siblings often joining in. Call or visit your local public library and check on the Oklahoma Summer Reading Program schedule in your community. So join fellow adventurers at your library—the 2006 Summer Reading Program.
