Skateboarding Workshops Come to
MLS Libraries This Summer

Skateboarding may be as close to surfing as most Oklahoma County teens can come this summer.  Ready to learn all about it?  Come to the library!   

As part of its “Make Waves at Your Library” Summer at the Library Program for Teens, the Metropolitan Library System is presenting a series of workshops called “Skateboarding Summer 2010.”  The 11 sessions will take place at 11 different library locations and will include skateboarding demonstrations, weather permitting, by local skaters.

“Once you get your feet wet on the board,” said MLS Teen Services Coordinator Emily Williams, “it’s hard not to have fun.  Our workshops are spread all around the county and are presented at various times so everyone can join in.”

The “Skateboarding Summer 2010” schedule is:
