NORMAN — Officials have revamped the Norman Public Library's children's programs, gearing story times to age groups and interests and adding more story times for babies and toddlers.
Branch Manager Leslie Tabor said the new schedule offers something for every age group, including a new program called Creative Space at 6:30 p.m. Thursdays for children in third through fifth grades.
