Is your child struggling with his or her homework? We have some resources to help!

There are a couple of options the library offers to students who need help with their school work. The first is our Homework Help Now database, which can be accessed via our homepage. This database provides expert help in the form of live tutors that can communicate with students online. It also provides flash cards, practice tests, and other skill building tools. You can find the Homework Help icon on our homepage next to the rotating banner of current events.

Common As a Penny by Rebecca Howard

Many of the books that I read are about common things—marriage, family, career—the stuff of everyday life. Often these types of books are unfairly categorized as women’s fiction, but I think taking our cue from the Young Adult genre, we should describe them as realistic fiction. There are no dystopian societies, serial killers, bank heists, spaceships, or demon overlords in these novels-- just mothers, daughters, sons, brothers, spouses, and partners. These novels mine the fields of ordinary for stories, showing us how the ordinary can be artful.

Don't Miss the Penguin Book Truck!

The Penguin Book Truck is back in Tulsa! If you didn't get a chance to visit the truck at Guthrie Green on Wednesday, you'll have another opportunity tonight at the First Friday Art Crawl in the Brady District. The Book Truck should be around from 6-9 offering all sorts of great Penguin books for sale. The best part, as far as we are concerned? They are donating a percentage of all their sales to the Ruth G. Hardman Adult Literacy Service! So, tell your friends, post it to Facebook, spread the word. We appreciate it!
