Afterschool Special

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, July 30, 2013 at 12:00:00 am

The school day ends at around three, but that’s no reason for the learning to stop. Now that ABC no longer offers after-school learning-via-television (with just a hint of morality) for kids, our friends at the Metropolitan Library System offer a number of after-school activities for students of all ages to fill that gap. One of the most popular is the After School @ Your Library program, which allows kids ages 10-16 to work weekly with a professional artist over a six-week period and exercise their creativity on a whole range of art projects, depending on their interest. How cool is that? But if art’s not your kid’s game, there’s still plenty to take in at your local library après- école. Ralph Ellison, Village and Capitol Hill all offer Chess Clubs; Belle Isle has a Gaming Club; Ellison, Belle Isle, Edmond and Southern Oaks offer an Anime Club; Del City sports a Lego Club; and Midwest City offers their popular Mad Scientist program, among others. Keep up with all the after-school goodness by checking out the calendar of events or contacting your local library. And that’s a good afterschool lesson for all of us!
