Let’s Talk About It Oklahoma!

Let’s Talk About It Oklahoma book discussions are starting at the library. To go with the theme of the Smithsonian Exhibit, this year’s theme is ‘Working to Survive: Surviving to Work’. Our first discussion will be August 8th at 5:30 pm. Our first book on this year’s list is ‘The Jungle’ by Upton Sinclair. The book depicts working class poverty, the lack of social supports, harsh and unpleasant living and working conditions, and a hopelessness among many workers. These elements are contrasted with the deeply rooted corruption of people in power.

Discussions for Let’s Talk About It begin at 5:30 p.m.

Scholastic Book Fair

Scholastic Book Fair a success!

Despite unpredictable weather, and the cancelation of other planned events, the first Friends of Waurika Public Library Scholastic Book Fair was a great success! We appreciate the support of those who attended and found fabulous books for the little ones in their life.
