Canadian County churches to aid recovery

Body
First Christian Church is helping families recover. The denomination, Disciples of Christ, is made up of many congregations, five of them in Canadian County. Right now they are working together to assist the citizens affected by the spring storms of 2019. These storms include several instances of flooding as well as the tornado that tore through the east end of El Reno in May, killing two people and injuring more than two dozen.

Big idea, tiny library

Body
There’s a new library open. It’s about 19 inches tall, 15 inches wide and made out of wood. Dubbed the Little Free Library, this new addition at Iron Tree Coffee Co. is an opportunity for the public to read on the go. As people sip their mochas, they can open up the little wooden box and take out any book they want. They don't have to return the books either, but if they're so inclined, they can leave one of their own for another reader to find.
