NORMAN —  The Noble Public Library, 204 N. 5th St., has announced activities for May. Family Story time kicks off the month at 10:30 a.m. on May 4.

Girls of all ages are invited to a special evening at Girls Night Out: May Flair with a Twist, at 6 p.m., May 10, at the library. The evening will feature a variety of activities, including entertainment with the Arthurian Order of Avalon and a chance to learn medieval dances including the Maypole dance, as well as some contemporary line dances. Queen of the May Flair will be crowned for the evening, and guests also can have their picture taken with her. Light refreshments will be provided.

The event is free but space is limited, so registration is required in advance to take part.
