Library begins 'Tails and Tales' summer program



Tuesday, June 1, 2021 - Stanley Tubbs Memorial Library in Sallisaw has a mix of virtual and in-person reading events planned for this summer, said Sharon Myers, the children's storytime librarian.


On June 10, Myers said, a juggler will be on hand to delight children, and there will be a virtual science museum June 15 and a class on fireflies June 17. On June 24, she said, the library will play host to a group of extreme animals in the gazebo. Past years have seen such will critters as a kangaroo and a chinchilla, Myers said.


Myers also talked about the library's summer reading challenge. Patrons can sign up online by visiting https://libraryaware.com/2AETY2 or eols.beanstack.org. Beanstack, a digital tracking app, is used to log reading minutes. Kids will receive a prize for every 100 minutes they read. The program runs through July 31.


For those without internet access who want to participate in the summer reading challenge, feel free to visit the library and fill out any necessary paperwork, Myers said. For more information, call the library at (918) 775-4481.
