Our Day at the Zoo

We have a WILD opportunity for you!  The Oklahoma City Zoo and Metropolitan Library System are excited to roll out a new, statewide literacy program called for 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, we are inspiring children to read about wildlife and connect with those same animals and plants here at the Zoo.  Read for Adventure enables any Oklahoma resident to check out “Our Day at the Zoo” from any library located in the state and receive one (1) voucher good for general admission for four (4) people to the Oklahoma City Zoo.  The voucher is good through March 31, 2019.

Read for Adventure runs May 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019.  The program is free to participate and open to any Oklahoman with a valid library card.

Help the Library and the Earth

The library is asking for your help.  Please save your aluminum cans for the library and not the land fill.  The Okeene Public Library is collecting cans and taking them to be recycled.  There is a collection container on the southwest corner of the 4-way stop. Thank you for your continued support of the Okeene Public Library.
