Miss Oklahoma Visits Downtown Library August 2 To Kickoff Early Childhood Programs


Alicia Clifton, Miss Oklahoma 2012, will visit the Downtown Library, 300 Park Avenue, on Thursday, August 2 at 10:00a.m. to help the Metropolitan Library System inaugurate a new series of early childhood programming events designed for the youngest readers and pre-readers.

“Miss Oklahoma couldn’t have made a better selection for reading to young children,” said Downtown Manager of Library Operations Angela Thornton.  “She chose to read the Dr. Seuss classic ‘The Cat in the Hat’.  Our new series of early childhood programs is called “Urban Sprouts,” and I can’t think of a better way to begin it than with a reading program that features one of Oklahoma’s best, brightest, and most promising personalities.”

Alicia Clifton, Miss Oklahoma 2012, is a junior at the University of Oklahoma and will represent the state in the Miss America pageant later this year.
