Tulsa Shock’s Glory Johnson and Jennifer Lacy are set to take a timeout from the hard court for a storytime in the book stacks.
Storytime with the Tulsa Shock is planned for July 23, 2 p.m., at Rudisill Regional Library, 1520 N. Hartford. Both Johnson and Lacy will read their favorite books, and talk about the importance of maintaining a strong mental and physical balance.
Their visit is part of Tulsa City-County Library’s children’s and teen summer reading programs. Children and teens completing the summer reading program will receive a coupon booklet for free food and entertainment throughout Tulsa County. One of the earned prizes is a free ticket to see the Tulsa Shock play the Los Angeles Sparks on Aug. 2, 7 p.m., at the BOK Center.
“It is important for children to see professional athletes and celebrities taking time to enjoy reading,” said Cher Lyons, Rudisill Regional Library’s children’s librarian. “The Tulsa Shock organization has been wonderful in supporting literacy and libraries. I think the players who have come to read in libraries enjoy it as much as the children do.”
