Talking Points: Why This Summer, You Should Have a Conversation

Summers with kids are not always cheap. Even a trip to the swimming pool, when you add the costs of bathing suits, sunscreen, towels, and snacks, can give your wallet a wallop.

Fortunately, you have an ace in your summer entertainment pocket. Yes, the library, but one more as well: talking.

The SUMMER READING PROGRAM is here!

Huzzah, huzzah, summer reading is finally here! The Tulsa City-County Library wants babies and children to LOVE reading and learning. That's why, for the 43rd year in a row we are offering a Summer Reading Program for children from infants through 5th grade. (There are also programs for everyone else: tweens, teens, and adults!)
