PROGRAMS

 

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 is a special reading event directed at young children, and held each spring to celebrate literacy and encourage reading.
