The Waurika Public Library’s annual Scholastic Book Fair starts this weekend! The Book Fair will be located at the front of the Waurika News Journal and will be open from 10:00 a.m. – 2: p.m. Saturday, May 4th to coincide with Downtown Again. At the Book Fair, you will find hundreds of books from new and favorite authors, popular series, cool posters, school supplies, and fun for everyone! The Scholastic Book Fair brings to Waurika a wonderful selection of fun, engaging, and affordable books kids want to read. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose books will motivate them to read more!
Summer is right around the corner! The Waurika Public Library invites elementary-aged children, those who will be entering 1st grade through 5th grade in September, to attend this year’s Summer Reading Program. A variety of weekday programming will be offered and lunch will be provided daily for any school-aged child.
The theme this year is A Universe of Stories! Programming will run each weekday, June 3-July 26 with the exception of the July 4 holiday. Reading and activities will be from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. with lunch served at 11:30 a.m. Children attending the Summer Reading Program must be picked up by their parent/guardian at noon each day.
Children must be registered to attend. For more information or registration forms, visit the Waurika Public Library or call 580.228.3274.
The Summer Reading Program is free to attend. The public library, community organizations and individuals care about your children. Together we raised funds to offer daily educational programs and week-day lunches to keep your children’s minds and bodies fed this summer. Whether keeping track of the amount of time your children spend reading or the number of books they’ve read this summer, children who attend the Summer Reading Program keep their minds active and enter the new school year ready to succeed.
