OHAI was here at the library, April 23, for a presentation by Chris Anderson from Northwest OHAI Center of Healthy Aging from Enid.  Chris talked to the group about doctor’s visits, communicating effectively with your doctor and being an advocate for yourself when it comes to your health.  We will have another class on Thursday, May 10th @ 1:30pm for caregivers that will be very informational! Please come join us! These classes have been made possible through a grant from the Oklahoma Department of Libraries and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  For more information, contact us @ 580-625-3076

 

 

Today at Children’s Time we took a story walk around our library park area and talked about spring time and how the grass is turning from brown to green and the trees are budding!  We learned about the process of starting a garden or planting flowers and how it takes  water and sunshine to help our seeds grow.  Miss Denise read us the books, “The Carrot Seed” and “Growing Vegetable Soup.”  We each got to try a carrot and later some cauliflower and broccoli.  Later, we gathered around  in groups and planted carrots and radishes in two big pots!  We are excited to see our seeds from last week’s planting sprout!  Now, we will have to return to the library to see how our new seeds are coming along!  This wonderful program was a part of our Health Literacy grant made possible through the Oklahoma Department of Libraries and the Institute of Museum of Library Services.

 

 

Starting in February 2019 exercise with Tai-Chi, every Monday and Wednesday @ 10:00AM. Collaborating with OSU Extension we will be having special programs on the  benefits of eating healthy, drinking more water, exercise and much more.  This class is part of our Health Literacy grant made possible through the Oklahoma Department of Libraries and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

 

 

On Tuesday, April 3, 2018, we read books about how seeds grow, all about plants and how to plant our seeds.  Mr. Sizelove from the OSU Extension office demonstrated how to plant our seeds in our very own pots.  Some of the children planted peas and black-eyed peas and others planted daisies and sunflowers.  We talked about planting vegetables for our upcoming summer community garden.  These fun and educational programs are made possible by our Health Literacy grant through the Oklahoma Department of Libraries and the Institute of Museum and Library Services!  Children’s Story Time is Tuesdays @ 10:30am.
