Literacy Day At The Library

The class of Pre-K a.m. and Pre-K p.m. along with three classes of Kindergarten children came to help celebrate Literacy Day at the library.  They learned how the library has fun and educational programs on the computers, got to play with some puppets, and looked at the books.  


Did you know that a report issued from the National Institute for Literacy estimates that nearly one in five Oklahomans lack the most basic reading, writing, and computational skills necessary for functioning in everyday life?

According to Profiles 2004 State Report, 22.2% of adults in Creek County do not have a high school diploma.  These figures jump to 28% for the community of Mounds.
