The Pawhuska Public Library announces Summer Reading Program 2018: “Libraries ROCK.”

Music and sounds of all kinds will be the theme, as we will explore music and sound. Just a couple of this summer’s programs include: Our ever-popular magician Steve will return, and the Oklahoma City Zoo will present a “ROARchestra” of animal music.

Did you know plants make music too? Find the beat in songs and poems. Try making musical crafts.

Summer Reading programs will take place in the library’s community meeting room, 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. each Friday in June and the first two weeks of July.
