The Frederick Public Library is gearing up for a truckload of fun in June with the return of the Summer Reading Program! This year we will have four programs, and the theme is “Dig Into Reading.”
The programs will be held every Wednesday in June beginning June 5th from 2:00 – 3:00 PM. All programs will be held at the Library. The Library is located at 200 E. Grand, on the corner of 11th and Grand.
On Wednesday, June 5, we will kick off our program with the return of Mad Science! They have been a big hit at the Summer Reading Program since 2010. Their program this year is called Journey to the Center of the Earth!
On Wednesday, June 12, we will have Sue Hokanson from Quartz Mountain to present a program on archaeological digs with a hands-on activity – the kids will be able to excavate like the archaeologists do!
On Wednesday, June 19, OSU Extension Agent Tammi Schrick will present a program about earthworms!
Finally, on Wednesday, June 26, we will welcome back a fun-filled presentation by The Magic Dad!
Children ages 5-11 and/or grades K-5 are invited to enjoy the Library by attending these great presentations and by READING ALL SUMMER! The Library has lots of books about archaeology, earthworms, underground creatures, magic – and just about everything else – for bookworms of all ages. In fact, books of all kinds will help anyone Dig Into Reading! All programs are open to the public and free of charge. Children younger than five must be accompanied by an adult.
Questions about the Summer Reading Program should be directed to the staff of the Frederick Public Library at 200 E. Grand. The phone number is 580-335-3601.
The Summer Reading Program is supported in whole or part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Oklahoma Department of Libraries. The programs and supplies are sponsored by the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, Sonic, Eta Gamma sorority, Frederick Public Library, and the Friends of the Library.
