Catch the Reading Bug!

The Children’s Summer Reading Program got off to a great start with Professor B. Looney and his “Don’t Bug Me, I’m Reading” program. The children enjoyed the funny Professor and his silly friend. Each child left with a balloon insect created especially for them.

Next to appear was Illusionist Kevin Clouse who performed a magical show enjoyed by the children and adults.

There is more to look forward to. The last day to turn in reading slips will be Friday, July 11. The award ceremony will be Saturday, July 12 at 10:00 am in the Library auditorium. The drawing for the bicycles, generously donated by VFW Post 1118 will be held after the ceremony. (Must be present to win) To cap off the Summer Reading Program, the Cushing Rotary club is sponsoring a free swim party at the Cushing Aquatic Center on Sunday, July 13. Tickets will be available at the Library on Friday, July 11 and Saturday, July 12. All children who participated in the reading program are invited to both events.

The Summer Reading Program is sponsored by Oklahoma Department of Libraries, the Institute for Museum and Library Services, The Oklahoman, Sonic, McDonalds, VFW Post 1118 and Cushing Rotary Club.
