Moore Public Library to revisit classic race with the help of the OKC zoo

In the classic tale of the race between a tortoise and a hare the titular tortoise overcomes the rabbit in a tale of persistence and patience, now the Moore Public Library, 225 S. Howard, is gearing up to recreate the famous race from literature at 2 p.m., Friday, March 17.

“The afternoon features a look at what makes a tortoise slow and what makes a hare fast and a look back at the history behind the timeless story,” according to the event announcement.

“And it will end up with a live race between a tortoise and hare.”

The program is open to children ages 11 and under, with their caregivers, and prior registration is required.

“The event is made possible by a grant from the Oklahoma Zoological Society, the Oklahoma City Zoo’s non-profit support group,” the announcement said.

The program will be limited to the first 300 people to register, with registration available on the Moore Public Library’s website.
