Summer Reading Progams 2019

Reading doesn't have to stop during summer vacation. Summer is a great time for kids to select their own books that will open up their imaginations and keep them exploring. The Oklahoma City Zoo's summer programs will keep kids inspired to come to your library. 

Aliens Among Us

Jelly-like skin, glowing bodies, too many legs to count! We’re not talking about extraterrestrials but the aliens among us! Join us as we explain the bizarre bodies of animals right here on our own planet.

The Goldilocks Zone: It’s Not Just for Bears

Thermal vents and polar ice caps may not be where you’d like to live but some animals find them to be jusssttt right! The Goldilocks Zone typically applies to a planet’s distance from the sun but we’ll use it to explore Earth’s most extreme habitats and those who live there.

Year-Round Programs

Bear Snores On!

Let it snore! Let it snore! Let it snore! Tiptoe into the wild world of animals who snooze and snore through the cold winter. Based on Karma Wilson's award-winning book, "Bear Snores On", we'll discover why some animals hibernate - and some don't - and why they can be grumpy if you wake 'em up. Cost: $125 up to 50 children, adults are free; $200 for auditorium style. Program does include live animals, but no bears.

Additional programming may be available by request.
