Summer Reading Program

A Universe of Stories

Summer Reading Program

Public libraries throughout Oklahoma will be the place to go for a Summer Reading adventure during the summer.  Local librarians have used materials and program ideas developed by the Collaborative Summer Library Program to keep thousands of Oklahoma children reading during their summer vacation months.

Grade school children may join any time during the program dates and participate by reading books and attending story-times and other special activities.

Space” is the overall theme for this year’s summer reading program.  The theme and slogans provide inspiration for library programs and a summer filled with reading adventures for young Oklahomans.

Every summer public libraries become the focal point for many children and teens looking for programs and activities to fill their free summer days. Books can take us anywhere in the universe using our most precious vehicle, imagination.

Some libraries sponsor reading contests, and award prizes to participants who meet their designated reading goals. Others have special programs for preschoolers and adults.

Most libraries hold storytimes and craft activities, with parents and siblings often joining in. Call or visit your local public library and check on the Oklahoma Summer Reading Program schedule in your community.

Oklahoma’s Summer Reading Program is coordinated each year by ODL’s Office of Library Development.

A special thanks to our sponsors: Sonic—America’s Drive-In, The OklahomanNewspapers in Education, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
