Metropolitan Library System Day 1 - NW and Capitol Hill

We kicked off the Metropolitan System tour in OKC today at the brand new North West branch. The building is impressive! Whimsical statues greet you on your way in. Structures resembling oil derricks rise up from the roof outside, and inside the base of each of these defines a smaller space within the open library, such as a checkout desk or study area. There is an outdoor courtyard attached to the children's area with high walls all around so kids can roam free. (When we arrived the librarians were rescuing a mouse who had fallen in!) The program room has an open airy feeling and great acoustics! There were only a handful of folks in attendance at the afternoon show at Capitol Hill, but we had a lot of fun there too! Here are photos: 

Those white areas are dry erase boards. I asked how you write on the top part - and was told that you don't. They double as projection screens, that's why they're so big! Cool - I will be using projectors with my science program next year.

Here is pretty much my entire audience from the afternoon show at Capitol Hill!
