Children will learn how they move, grow, find their food and protect themselves from harm. They’ll also see if they have what it takes to survive a mini-obstacle course, where they’ll have to jump like frogs, move like snakes and crawl like lizards.
Registration is required to attend the program.

Literacy program seeks tutors
The Pioneer Library System’s Cleveland County Literacy Services Department will host a tutor training for prospective volunteer tutors at 9:30 a.m. April 12 at the Norman Public Library, 225 N. Webster Ave., in the Lowry Room.
This training is specifically designed for volunteers who want to work with learners of English as Second Language in Cleveland County. Registration may be completed through the Cleveland County Literacy Office at 701-2682.
The library provides free one-on-one tutoring for adult learners, both for ESL students and also for native speakers of English who need help with their reading. Services are offered by county, with tutors and students meeting at one of the system’s 10 branch libraries.
Each prospective tutor must take part in one training session before being placed with a student they will work one-on-one with on literacy skills. Tutors must be age 18 or older and be high school graduates. Tutors will receive information at the tutoring session, as well as a plan to follow as they work with their students.
