Plenty planned at the Reading Nook


OREGON – The Oregon Park District Reading Nook is a cute little park across from Nash with a Lending Library, a pergola with seating and a play structure designed for ages 2-5.

The Art In The Park free programs are sponsored by E.D. Etnyre & Co. 

With their presenting sponsorship, the Park District has been offering a variety of fun programs such as the Creating with Clay, making slime, bracelet making, sidewalk art, and most recently making and playing instruments. 

Olivia Stafford, recent OHS graduate, was the special guest playing her ukulele and singing!  The children were able to make drums and shakers, bell bracelets, singing straws, clapping sticks, tambourines and more.  Watch for more fun Art in the Park days at The Reading Nook this summer. 

Activities will include making salt paintings on July 25, creating with pipe cleaners on August 1 and making window clings on Aug. 8. Follow the Park District on Facebook to see fun pictures of our activities. For more information on the Park District free programs, call 815-732-3101.
