Touch A Truck at annual community event Sept. 24 in Norman

The honk of the horns, the luster of chrome, the sight of smiling faces and the tremendous trucks. It’s a morning that brings families out for a close-up look at some of the community’s biggest, most helpful and sometimes loudest vehicles.  

A family favorite in Cleveland County for a dozen years, Touch A Truck is back again this fall from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 24, at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds, 615 E. Robinson St. in Norman.

The event, organized by the Pioneer Library System Foundation and sponsored by many community partners, has the community’s favorite local librarians on hand to keep things going smoothly amidst dozens of vehicles of many shapes and sizes.
