Upward Bound and McKee Library Host Summer Reading Program

Goodwell, Okla. — Oklahoma Panhandle State University is presenting a pilot library summer reading program. Youth from grades K-6 are invited to participate in the program throughout the month of June which will be conducted together with the Upward Bound Summer Program. The theme of the program is “Stories from Other Lands” and will emphasize stories and legends from countries of Hispanic heritage. Upward Bound students and staff, with assistance from McKee library staff, will provide crafts, music, dance and food to highlight Hispanic culture and literature.

The Summer Reading program will take place at McKee Library on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 to 2 p.m. The sessions will be filled with various stories and activities, and will also include time for participants to check out books and record books read. The program will culminate in the awarding of participation certificates and prizes for most books read during the four-week program.

Upward Bound is a federally funded program to help high school students better prepare for post-secondary opportunities and is under the direction of Teri Mora. Ms. Katy Levings, Research Librarian, has been actively engaged in providing resources for the Summer Reading program and will provide assistance to the Upward Bound students and staff.

To register for the program, please email karen.esquivel@opsu.edu. There is no charge for the program, but pre-registration will help ensure that sufficient materials are available.
