Quartz Mountain naturalist to present program at library

Teen crafting programs also offered

June 22, 2014

Summer Program at the Altus Public Library continues with Quartz Mountain Naturalist Sue Hokanson. Sue will be at the library Thursday, June 26 at 2 p.m. to talk about “What’s Beneath Our Feet, Rock and Soil.” The kids will learn about the rocks and soil at Quartz Mountain State Park. Everyone is invited but parents may find Sue’s program is more appropriate for children 3rd grade and up.
Sue has been doing programs for the library for quite a number of years. Sue is very entertaining and has a way with giving the kids dry facts and making them fun to learn.
The library is also offering a few teen crafting programs. Two upcoming programs are scheduled for June 27 and July 1. The first program is Crochet Button Jewelry. The second is Fused Plastic Creations. Both crafting programs will be held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Pre-registration is requested so please call the library at 477-2890.
For preschoolers thru second grade there will be a thirty minute program Tuesday, July 8 at 10:30 am featuring short films. Some of the films are from books children love.
Many take-home crafts still available for the kids and the reading program is still going on and will continue until school starts. In addition, the library is a great place to go to cool off or dry out during these lazy, hazy days.
For information about any of the programs the library is having call them at 477-2890. Check out our web site: or visit us on our Face Book page: Southern Prairie Library System.
