There will be no in person events at the library through spring 2021.
Programming is also on hold through the spring of 2021. We are planning on gradually offering programming beginning with the Summer Reading Program in June. Sign ups will be in May.
This means no FOL events like the October Book Sale, Dogtober Pawrade & Party, & December Holiday Craft Show.
The FOL will have a quilt to raffle off in November/December so stay tuned for details regarding ticket sales.
The Murder Mystery Dinner Theater in February is also cancelled.
The FOL plan to help with the Summer Reading Program and the Very Hungry Reader Program in June & July.
This service is funded by a generous donation from the 19th Amendment Commemoration Committee!
This service will be available as long as the governor declares an emergency.
This is in effect for the November 3rd election!
If you are going to vote via absentee ballot the library, with the support of the 19th Amendment Commemoration Committee, is offering to make a FREE copy of your ID to put in with your ballot AND free postage.
You must bring your ballot envelope to the library in order to get the postage as we will put the postage directly onto the envelope for you. We can mail it for you as well, if you would like.
If you’re voting by mail you MUST include a copy of your ID and we will make that copy for you.
Beginning Tuesday, June 1 the meal program will transition to Tuesdays & Thursdays from 10:00am – 3:00pm in the library’s CC Meeting Room next to the theater. Meals must be eaten on site and are for kids under 18 yrs old. This coincides with our Summer Reading Program but you do NOT have to participate in that program in order to get a meal.
The Oklahoma Food Bank has given sites permission to hand out meals “to go” and the library will be an evening meal site. You can come through the far west side, drive thru window, between 4:00pm and 6:00pm to grab a meal and snack for each child. There are no sign ups and the only requirement is that the meals be for children. Most of these meals will need to be heated up as they are “dinner foods” but also come with milk and a snack bag.
Example meals are: corn dog bites, lasagna, chicken nuggets, and pb&j uncrustables all with sides, milk, and a snack bag.
Last week is July 20-24.
We have “take away” bags for the kids this summer to help keep them busy and you sane!
Due to the overwhelming demand for these bags we are limiting the number to 100 bags each week and highly suggest you come on Mondays to pick up your bag as they popular!
We will post on FB when the bags are gone for the week.
Come by the library’s west entrance in June and July to pick up a bag of crafts and goodies each week for your child. They will be allowed ONE “basic” bag with crafting supplies like scissors, markers, crayons, glue and such. Then each week there will be a different themed bag. There will be displays inside the library with books and movies that go along with this summer’s theme, “Imagine Your Story” a fantasy theme.
The bags will have a reading log for you to fill out but there will be no competition this summer as we are focusing on keeping everyone busy reading and engaged. We are working on more coupons and goodies to fill the weekly bags.
