Chickasha Public Library 2018 Free Summer Reading Program
Readers of all ages will explore all things musical this summer as the Chickasha Public Library presents “Libraries Rock” during their free summer reading program, which kicks off on May 31st with sign-ups from 9:30 am to 6:00 pm at the Library 527 W. Iowa Ave.
The program is every Thursday in June & July at the library; Children and teens are not required to attend every session. We know summers are a busy time for families so come when you can.
The most important thing is that your child reads over the summer, this will help them retain the knowledge that they have gained throughout the school year leaving them ready to learn next year. To encourage this when they sign up, they will receive a log to keep track of their minutes spent reading. They turn those sheets in when they attend a program and earn incentives based on the minutes spent reading.
The Library offers multiple sessions to work with busy summer schedules; there will be two sessions to pick from for ages 6-11 one at 10:00 am and one at 2:00 pm.
There will also be a tweens session at 4:00 pm for ages 10 and up. Youth, age 10 to 11 and their parents, can choose which program they wish to attend the children or tweens. Activities will include reading, group games, musical crafts, and more. There will also be multiple performers throughout the summer.
For more information, call the library at 405-222-6075.
All programs are FREE of charge.
