Story Time returns to the Waurika Public Library every Wednesday at 10:00 a.m.  We read stories to the children and after Story Time there are games and computers that the children can use.  Next week, we’ll read “Our Day at the Zoo” released by the Oklahoma City Zoo and Metropolitan Library System.

The Oklahoma City Zoo and Metropolitan Library System rolled out a new, statewide literacy program called Read for Adventure. This program aims to promote literacy within families, increase their contact with the outdoors and provide an outlet for invaluable, nature-inspired discoveries.  Educating Oklahomans about wildlife and wild places has always been central to the OKC Zoo’s mission and through this partnership, are inspiring children to read about wildlife and connect with those same animals and plants at the Zoo.  

For this program the OKC Zoo and Metropolitan Library System introduced the children’s book “Our Day at the Zoo”.  The story is about children that visit and imitate a variety of animals on a trip to the OKC Zoo and Botanical Garden.  The book is available for check out at the Waurika Public Library and patrons that check out “Our Day at the Zoo” will receive one free voucher good for general admission for four people to the Oklahoma City Zoo good through March 31, 2019.
