Program Description

Event Description

What good can a splash of color do in a community of gray? Come find out as you become the little artist that could! In this kit, you'll (1) watch a short animated video called "Words on the Wall" from the Different and The Same series; (2) read Maybe Something Beautiful: How Art Transformed a Neighborhood by F. Isabel Campoy; and (3) personalize a puzzle piece in a way that represents your unique self within the community! Be the paintbrush and join in the celebration of color! If you attended our program with the Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice (OCCJ) last February or in 2000, please note this is a NEW video, so sign up now!

Different and the Same is a child-focused initiative that helps students identify, talk about, and prevent prejudice. The centerpiece of the program is a series of child-friendly videos developed by the company affiliated with the highly-regarded children’s program “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” The videos utilize a diverse group of puppets and live actors to teach lessons about differences, respect, and getting along with others. These lessons stay with children for a lifetime, helping them develop into caring and compassionate citizens.

Kits are ONE PER FAMILY. PLEASE NOTE HOW MANY CHILDREN IN YOUR FAMILY, AND I WILL INCLUDE A PUZZLE PIECE FOR EACH CHILD. Duplicate registrations will be canceled. Kits can be picked up at Northwest Library from Wednesday February 16th through Saturday February 19th. Registered customers must pick up kits by Saturday 4 PM or call the library at (405) 231-8650 to make alternate pick up arrangements as any remaining kits will be made available to waitlisted customers on Sunday.


We can only guarantee one kit per registration.  Please register individually to ensure that kits are appropriately distributed.  Special notes should not be used for additional registrations.

Thank you for your help!
