Library’s Summer Reading Program Winds Down

Readers of all ages explored the animal kingdom this summer at the Chickasha Public Library. The “Tales and Tails” themed Summer Reading Program was open to all young people, preschool through young adult, and included free virtual and in-person programs. 

Participants in Summer Reading logged more than 51,955 minutes using the app Beanstack. 

As part of Summer Reading, author and performer Una Bell Townsend hosted storytime at the Washita Valley Community Center in June, telling children about a cow called Grady. To wrap up the Summer Reading program, Extreme Animals brought animals to Centennial Park in July.

To encourage reading throughout the year, the Library will add new reading challenges for all ages on Beanstack, available on Apple and Android devices. 

Stop by the Chickasha Public Library, located at 527 W Iowa Ave., or follow the Library on Facebook to learn about upcoming programs. 

The Chickasha Public Library’s Summer Reading program was supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) through the Library Services and Technology Grant, the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, the Boomarang Diner  and the Friends of the Chickasha Public Library.
