STILLWATER, Okla. — Along the lines of James Bond, students ranging from grades 6 to 12 can take part in the Secret Agent Academy at Stillwater Public Library from 2 to 3 p.m. Wednesday

Librarian Scott Freeman said there will be a variety of stations set up with secret agent training activities.

“There will be a station where they can create a secret identity and do disguises,” he said. “There will be a station where they learn to create invisible ink.”

Freeman said the event is free and anyone may attend. He said he believes the most popular portion may be the obstacle course.

“It’s active,” he said. “They get to try to navigate their way through this course and it will be a challenge for them.”

This event is part of the summer reading program, titled “Beneath the Surface,” hosted through the library. More than 100 youths attended the last event two weeks ago. Freeman encourages everyone to register for the free summer reading program.

“For every 10 hours you read, you get an entry into the drawing at the end of the summer for one of two Kindle Fires,” he said.

Those interested in registering must come to the library in person to do so. For more information, call 372-3633.
