Reading, Writing & Celebration


Summer Reading Program
Every summer, students across Oklahoma are out of school and looking for adventure. Public libraries throughout Oklahoma are the place to go for a reading adventure during June and July. 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.


Read Across Oklahoma

Read Across Oklahoma is a special reading event directed at young children and held each year to celebrate literacy and encourage reading. The event features special activity stations and performances throughout the zoo.


Oklahoma Book Awards

The Oklahoma Center for the Book has co-sponsored the Oklahoma Book Awards for over 20 years. Oklahoma Book Awards are given each year in fiction, non-fiction, children/young adult, poetry, and design/illustration categories for work written by an Oklahoman or about Oklahoma.
