Every year librarians across the state of Oklahoma serve on committees to choose the best books to nominate for the Oklahoma Sequoyah Awards. The award was created to honor Native American Leader Sequoyah who created the Cherokee syllabary, which is made up of symbols to represent the sounds in the Cherokee language. Winners of each category (elementary, intermediate and high school) are chosen by students who have read at least three of the books on their list and voted for their favorite. Winners of the 2019 awards will be announced Friday. Books nominated for 2020 are available at the library.
Beginning April 1, we will have an evening tai chi class on Monday and Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
Monica Gary, certified instructor, will teach a 12-week program on “Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance.” Tai chi involves simple, easy-to-learn movements that offer a variety of benefits. In addition to improved balance, tai chi can increase self-confidence and memory as well as help relieve anxiety and stress. Class size is limited. Stop by or call the library if you would like to sign up for a class.
