Family Reading Program: Summer on the Plaza

SOTPSummer on the Plaza has ended for 2016.

Don't have a chance to come to the library together during the day? The Stillwater Public Library is teaming up this summer with Allied Arts to bring reading fun to "Summer on the Plaza."

"Summer on the Plaza" is a free family friendly event held outside the OSU Student Union each Thursday evening, May 19-June 30, with live music and activities starting at 6 p.m., and a movie at 8 p.m..

The movie selections this summer are related to children's books.

At the library's booth on the plaza, your family can pick up a FREE COPY of the Newbery Award book "Bridge to Terabithia" by Katherine Paterson along with a handout with fun facts and discussion questions. Families are encouraged to read and discuss the novel together prior to the June 30 film screening of the novel. We have 150 copies to give away!

At the June 30 screening, humanities scholar Harbour Winn, English Professor and Director of the Center for Interpersonal Studies through Film and Literature at Oklahoma City University, will provide commentary on the novel & the process of transformation to a film.

Stop by the library's booth at each event to do fun activities related to each evening's movie/book and to sign up for the Summer Reading Program.

We hope you will join us!
