Rock With Wizards and Nerds At Southern Oaks Library

Have you heard about the nerds? Everybody knows that the nerd is the word.

That’s not exactly how the 1960s garage band The Trashmen sang it in their hit song “Surfin’ Bird,” but that’s the idea behind the Metropolitan Library System’s annual summer rock concert on Friday, July 5, at the Southern Oaks Library, 6900 S. Walker, starting at 6:30 p.m.

Edmond Library Workshop Helps Moms Survive A Busy Summer

Mom, if you could be in two places at the same time, would that mean you could complete everything you had to do in half the time, or that you’d be expected to do twice as much?

Try “Mom’s Survival Guide For a Busy Summer” at the Edmond Library, 10 S. Boulevard, on Tuesday, June 25 at 7:00 p.m.
