Check out the 2022 Collaborative Summer Library Program artwork — Oceans of Possibilities by Sophie Blackall!
Read for Adventure, the statewide literacy program, is now underway. Thanks to the OKC Zoo and OG&E, all participating libraries received a kit that included: one copy of the Juniper's Butterfly Garden book, 100 OKC Zoo ticket vouchers, posters and bookmarks.
Children who check out Juniper's Butterfly Garden receive a voucher for four guests to visit the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden for FREE!
Reservations are not required for entry into the Zoo, and Read for Adventure vouchers can be redeemed at any Zoo ticket window. Read the letter from the Zoo about this statewide literacy promotion.
More information, coloring pages and list of participating libraries: OKCZoo.org/READFORADVENTURE
NOTE: Previous years' vouchers are no longer valid.
