Native American Celebration At Midwest City Library

Oklahoma has one of the largest Native American populations in the nation, and your Metropolitan Library System continues its celebration of Native Americans’ histories and cultures on Sunday, November 1, 2009, at the Midwest City Library, 8143 E. Reno, from 2-4pm.

“Our celebration,” said librarian Suzette Felton, “is centered on two fascinating exhibits on display here at Midwest City.  One is a photo exhibit called ‘Cherokee Nation: A Portrait of a People,’ and the other is the Soldier Creek Quilting Group’s annual quilt exhibit.  The quilters meet here at the library every week and they create wonderful work.  This year, the exhibit will include Seminole patchwork designs.”

In addition to the displays, the Native American Celebration will also include explorations of Native American culture through story, song, dance and other forms of art.  It will also feature the work of several local artists.

The events and exhibits are suitable for all ages.  They are free and open to the public.

For more information, call the Midwest City Library at 732-4828.

The Native American Celebration is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Metropolitan Library System.
