Reading With the N.O./Oklahoma City Hornets

The Oklahoma City Hornets will be scoring big with elementary school children when a team of players comes to the Downtown Library on Friday, Feb. 9, 2007 , from 4:00 to 5:00pm . The NBA players will meet and mingle with the kids before settling down to read aloud to them.

“The program is called ‘Reading Time Out With the Oklahoma City Hornets',” said Downtown librarian Lisa Bradley. “Team members will read aloud to the children, and my guess is that they will have just as much fun as the kids. Maybe more.”

If more proof were needed that the Hornets and Oklahoma City have a very special relationship going, this special story hour should erase all doubts.

‘It's an after-school event,” Bradley added, “so we expect a large turn-out. For that reason, people need to call ahead to pre-register and arrange for tickets.”

The Downtown Library is located at 300 Park Ave. For more information, please call 606-3862.

“Reading Time Out With the Oklahoma City Hornets” is co-sponsored by the Metropolitan Library System and the New Orleans / Oklahoma City Hornets.
