Summer Reading Program Registration

Bringing Summer Reading activities to you!

In an effort to keep all of our library family safe, the Cushing Public Library will be providing our Summer Reading Program virtually and with take-away packets for 2020. Participants can join us online for activities, games and reading challenges and we will have weekly Activity Packets available for pickup at the library for participants to work on at home.

There will be two age groups for the program this year, a combined program for ages 3-12 and a newly added teen program for ages 13-19.

Sign-up online here:  

Ages 3-12

Ages 13-19

Don’t have reliable internet service? Drop in or call (918-225-4188) to sign up and participate with our weekly Activity Packets.

Participants can start tracking their reading beginning July 1st. Reading Trackers are available at the Customer Service Desk at the library and copies will be included in every Activity Packet.

New online content and Activity Packets will be released every Monday in July.  The first week’s material will be available on July 6th.

The Program

Participants will have the opportunity to earn and collect Library Bucks that they will be able to spend at the Cushing Library Prize Shop. The shop is expected to be open August 3-14 and hours will be announced closer to the shop’s opening.

Participants will receive Reading Trackers and Weekly Activity Trackers that can be completed and turned in at the library in exchange for one Library Buck per tracker. Participants can use the Reading Trackers to track time spent reading over the course of the program.

There is a limited number of Activity+Craft Kits and these kits will go out on a first come-first served basis to those signed up for the program. Once Activity+Craft Kits are gone, participants will receive an Activity Packet. Activity+Craft Kits contain all of the same contents as the Activity Packet plus one craft that has all of the pieces included.

Pokemon Go is here!

WHAT IS POKEMON GO?

Pokemon Go is a smart phone app game that released July 7th here in the US. People who have downloaded this game travel their towns and thanks to Google Maps and this game, can encounter pokemon in the real world to catch. Pokemon has been a popular series for almost 20 years and continues to entertain people of all ages with the show, games, and now on smartphones.

The Cushing Library is happy to learn that we were selected as a Pokemon Stop! This means that anyone who plays the game can stop by to rest on their pokemon journey and stock up on Pokeballs and other items. All you have to do is tap the Pokestop when you’re here and spin our icon to get items. We are also next door to a pokemon gym, so come relax here while keeping an eye on who’s the top trainer!
