MOORE — The Moore Public Library brings back a favorite from last year’s Summer Reading Program for a spring break appearance, as the library welcomes “Extreme Animals!” from 2-4 p.m. Tuesday in Rooms A and B of the library, 225 S. Howard Ave.

Extreme Animals’ safari guides will lead an adventure of a diverse group of animals as they make a visit to the library.

The organization brings outreach programs throughout the state, sharing not just information about wild animals but a chance for program participants to get an up-close look at them.

Registration is not required to attend the program.

Library to host scarf making program

The Moore Public Library will host a Teen Scarf Making program as part of its schedule of spring break activities, at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in Room A of the library, 225 S. Howard Ave.

Teens will come with their creativity and learn a few tips and tricks to make a scarf. Participants will either be able to leave with either a completed scarf, or all of the supplies they will need to finish their scarf at home.
