The Western Plains Library System Bookmobile supported our summer camp. On a monthly basis we provide the family friendly Reading Ranger program at the Elk City Carnegie Library, the Sayre Public Library, and the Minnie R. Slief Library.For the month of August, we will continue our Battlefield Book Club discussing Tommy Orange’s debut novel, There There, and in November the classic non-fiction book, Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown. Reading is intimidating, especially books of significant thickness. It also takes more effort to read a book than to watch a movie.

Consider exercising your imagination with fiction, or your mind with non-fiction. Expose your children or grandchildren to the joys of reading. Join us for a conversation, mingle with your fellow citizens, and do something different and rewarding, read a book. Chief Ranger Kevin Mohr
