    As a part of our ONEcard partnership with Oklahoma City Public Schools, we are co-sponsoring a reading room this summer at Penn Square Mall with the ReadOKC Task Force. This is a great opportunity for children to read while at the mall with their families and will be great exposure for the initiative. The Reading Room is located on the second floor of the west end of the Mall next to Dillard’s.
