“That's our motif that we will play off of as far as artwork and programming,” Williams said. “In a lot of the teen stuff we're doing a red dirt painting class and in another they will handle skeletons and learning about the science of bones and fossils.”
About 25,000 people participated in last summer's reading programs. Participation increases about 10 percent every year, Williams said.
Summer activities will include performances from Rhythmically Speaking, the Sugar Free All Stars and OKC Improv. For a complete schedule, go to www.metrolibrary.org.
