Read Across America
Read Across America is an annual reading program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2nd, the birthday of beloved children’s author, Dr. Seuss. This year, Ida Freeman held the third annual school-wide celebration with a day of Seuss-tastic activities. One of the most important activities happening that day will be guest readers in every classroom!
THANK YOU to the many volunteers, such as Rotary, Edmond Police & Fire, City Council, that helped to make this celebration Seuss-cessful!!!
Bushels for Books Program
Ida Freeman was selected to be a part of the Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation & the Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers’ Bushel for Books program! Bushel for Books program seeks to provide accurate and current agriculture books in Oklahoma schools. Local farmers and co-ops have donated part of their wheat crops to help fund the donations in hopes that it will inspire future farmers.
Thank you for the books! It will be an excellent addition to our library for both teachers and students to learn more about agriculture!

Citizens Bank donated over $1,000 to Ida Freeman Library in honor of the retirement of Police Chief Bob Ricks. They also donated a basket of Police themed books! Thank you Citizens bank for the donation! Thank you Chief Ricks for your service to Edmond and your time as a Rotary Reader at Ida Freeman!
