Books to Treasure with Katherine Roy
November 18, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Tulsa City-County Library treasures books… but we treasure children more! That is the idea behind the Books To Treasure program, which has been around since 2003. The goal is to celebrate the beauty and power of children’s literature and inspire a love of reading in children. Sponsored by the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation since its inception, Books To Treasure has grown into a Tulsa tradition for all second-grade students in Tulsa County. These youngsters receive a free copy of a treasured illustrator’s book, the chance to get their very own library card, and an opportunity to see the illustrator in person and get their books signed!
Katherine Roy, the 2022 Books To Treasure illustrator, will give a public presentation and book signing on Friday, November 18 at 6 p.m. at the Hardesty Regional Library. This is an amazing opportunity for children to witness the creativity and passion that goes into illustrating a book, and to meet a “real life” illustrator. This event is free and open to the public, copies of books illustrated by Katherine Roy will be available for purchase at the event.
The Books to Treasure program is sponsored annually by the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation. With their support, the program began in 2003 and has grown into a Tulsa County tradition for second grade students.
