Library director Lillie Huckaby presents a letter to library patrons.

Dear Library e-Patrons,
I know many of you are greatly enjoying the refreshing exterior painting of the library. Much of the building looks great now. However, the building is not completely refreshed, there is more to go. I would like to appeal to e-book readers to help. I think many of you do your reading through the OK Virtual Library and thus you don’t come into the library often, but you read books. What are your favorite titles? There are many panels available for sponsorship. In all honesty they are not as visible as what has already been painted, however it’s still a great opportunity for you to share in the fun of selecting titles and having them visible for all to see. The panels still available are $300 each on the southeast side, you may select one title or several, up to 15. The artists are Adam and Amber Heilman. The money goes directly to them. Will you help refresh the look of the library? You can call the library 405-222-6075 and ask for me or email me at

Thanks for being great library customers,
Lillie Huckaby

Library’s Summer Reading Program Winds Down


Readers of all ages explored the animal kingdom this summer at the Chickasha Public Library. The “Tales and Tails” themed Summer Reading Program was open to all young people, preschool through young adult, and included free virtual and in-person programs. 

Participants in Summer Reading logged more than 51,955 minutes using the app Beanstack. 

As part of Summer Reading, author and performer Una Bell Townsend hosted storytime at the Washita Valley Community Center in June, telling children about a cow called Grady. To wrap up the Summer Reading program, Extreme Animals brought animals to Centennial Park in July.


To encourage reading throughout the year, the Library will add new reading challenges for all ages on Beanstack, available on Apple and Android devices. 

Stop by the Chickasha Public Library, located at 527 W Iowa Ave., or follow the Library on Facebook to learn about upcoming programs. 

The Chickasha Public Library’s Summer Reading program was supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) through the Library Services and Technology Grant, the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, the Boomarang Diner  and the Friends of the Chickasha Public Library.
