Pioneer Library System Gearing Up for Autumn

Autumn is just about here, and it’s a time for the Pioneer Library System and its 12 libraries to reload after a busy Summer Learning Program.

As a new Norman Public Library Central branch nearing completion, Norman’s West and East libraries will be busy with activity during September.

As part of Banned Book Week, an American Libraries Association initiative, Norman East will host a Banned Book Trivia and Craft event at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25. Ages 10 to 13 are invited to learn about why some books are banned or challenged and then compete in teams in a trivia contest.

For a little fun, visit Norman West for a Pirate P-ARRR-ty on “Talk Like a Pirate Day,” at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 19. There will be pirate-themed crafts, activities and movies to experience.

Also, look for activities throughout the month in the PLS Cleveland County libraries located in Moore, Noble and Southwest Oklahoma City.
