Youngsters get a chance to explore everything from a construction crane to a police cruiser to a helicopter at the ninth annual “Touch a Truck” on Saturday at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds, 615 E Robinson St.

More than 40 vehicles will be on hand from 9:30 a.m. to noon for children to look at, sit in and touch. A special “quiet hour” from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. is reserved for children with special needs.

Admission is a suggested donation of $2 per child. Proceeds benefit the children's section of Pioneer Library System libraries in Cleveland County.

The event was started in 2004 by the MOMS Club of Norman, the city's oldest organization for at-home moms and their children. Since its inception, “Touch a Truck” has raised more than $28,000 to buy furniture, toys and supplies for the children's section of the Norman Public Library.

This year, the MOMS Club is handing coordination of the event over to the Pioneer Library System and the Pioneer Library System Foundation, expanding its benefits to help the children's sections of the three other hometown libraries in Cleveland County, which are Noble, Moore and South Oklahoma City.
