We were recently inspired by Philbrook Museum of Art’s Garden Cat Pen Pal Program and when we shared what our friends Perilla the Garden Cat and Cleo the Garden Cat were up to in Tulsa, our beloved Library Dog, Spoticus, said he’d love to be a pen pal too!
Throughout the month of May, children can write Spoticus and he will send them a postcard back. Spoticus is currently getting ready for the launch of this year’s Summer Reading Program, Imagine Your Story! He’d love to hear what your favorite story is! Or let him know what your favorite part of Summer Reading is!
Letters or postcards for Spoticus should be sent to:
Ronald J. Norick Downtown Library
300 Park Avenue
Oklahoma City, OK 73102
Spoticus misses seeing you at the library and out in the community; he can’t wait to connect again soon via snail mail!
More information about this year’s Summer Reading Program will be available soon! This year’s Summer Reading Program, Imagine Your Story, will take place from June 1-July 31, and pre-registration will begin May 15. Make sure to connect with us on social media to stay posted and learn more!
