Summer Reading Program

2018 Summer Reading Program Special Events

Each program is held at the Ringling Community Center with the library opening at 3:15 p.m.


Mad Science LogoWe kick off with Mad Science Rocks at the Library!  June 7th @ 2:00 p.m. 
We will discover the universal language of music.  Clap and be astonished to see light streak from the vibrations!  Explore pitches and make your music using things you find!  Use PVC pipes, boom-whackers, and even glasses of water to create a silly Mad Science symphony.

The Oklahoma City Zoo returns with ROARchestra! June 14th @ 2:00 p.m.
Grab a program, take a seat, and get ready for the wildest orchestra on Earth!  Far beyond the world’s honking horns and clanging contraptions lie the truly wild places where nature’s greatest musicians perform day and night.  Aginst a backdrop of waves, wind, and water, we’ll listen to the musicians of the jungle, prairie, ocean, and forest perform an amazing symphony.  Then, tune up your instruments, and set your toes a-tappin’ as we recreate the sounds with our own wild orchestra.

Tara Brown, Jefferson County Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service Educator, returns June 21st @ 2:00 p.m.
Subject to be announced.
