The Library is excited to announce that we will begin hosting crafting classes and will open a creative area in June called the “Creative Corner”. 
The Creative Corner will be a designated space that patrons can
reserve to work on projects. 
The space will contain creative supplies to decorate bulletin boards, do scrapbooking, journaling and many other forms of creativity.

We will be equipping the room with a computer and Cricut cutter, paper, fabric, ribbon, scissors, cutting boards and much more. 
Patrons will reserve the use of the room much like a meeting room, and
there will be no cost to patrons!
We have also purchased a craft cabinet to hold materials for classes. 

Our first class, on May 21st from 2-4 p.m.,
will be the making of a burlap wreath.
To register for the “Wreath Making Class”, click HERE
The second class will be on June 18
th from 6 to 8 p.m. 
This class will be “Introduction to Scrapbooking”.

As you can imagine supplies will be quite costly.  We are asking for donations. 
If you have craft supplies you are willing to donate, please bring them to the Library. 
Once donations have been inventoried and organized,
we will purchase what was not donated. 

If creating is an interest of yours, we hope to see you at the Library soon!

Announcing our 2019 Summer Reading Program, “A Universe of Stories!”

Readers of all ages will explore the Universe this summer as the Bartlesville Public Library presents “A Universe of Stories.” Activities for children include space-themed crafts, storytelling, STEM projects, science experiments, magic, juggling, acrobatics, and more. Just some of the events for teens are a Sci-Fi Trivia night, Sci-Fi board game demos (both co-sponsored and hosted by Paper Games), a painting class, a very cool presentation by a member of the Bartlesville Astronomical Society, a “special” movie screening, and some great STEAM activities. We’ll end with a Grand Finale Pool Party at Frontier Pool for both age groups and their families! (See separate “Event” postings for program

Participants may sign up any time beginning on May 4th. Beginning on June 3rd, they will let us know each week what they’ve been reading or had read to them, for a small prize. Each Monday morning during June & July, we will draw a weekly prize winner from each age category, including everyone who reported to us that previous week. You need not be here for the drawing. What should you read? Absolutely anything you want to read! What could you win? Free books, movie passes, and a variety of other fun things! 

BPL’s Summer Reading Program is locally funded by the Bartlesville Friends of the Library. Much thanks to this wonderful organization!
