I'm looking for some good book suggestions. Can the library help me find something that will fit my tastes?

Well, we can certainly give it a shot. The Tulsa library offers a service called Your Next Great Read, which compiles a list of books and authors for individuals based on their personalized reading preferences. The Your Next Great Read service was started in the Spring of 2011, and modeled after the Looking for a Good Book program from the Williamsburg Regional Library System. In the year that the program has existed at TCCL, we've created over 400 personalized reading lists for our patrons.

The Game, The Wire, and Gritty Mysteries by Nick

I don’t think any HBO original series has aged quite as well as The Wire . Just thinking out loud here…Four years after the finale, universities across the country, Ivy League universities, are updating their course catalogues with classes dedicated to using The Wire as a teaching tool. Be it Journalism, Sociology, Theatre, even American Studies; social sciences across the board are parsing facets of the series to use as a vehicle of study.

Memory Twisters by Laura

My memory is perfect. Except for all of the times when it’s not. (Which is, truth be told, pretty much all of the time.)

Despite this (or maybe because of it – I don’t remember), I tend to enjoy novels in which memory plays a thematic role… novels where characters either remember events differently, and it complicates the plot, or memories haunt characters, and it complicates the plot.

My lawn equipment needs some work but I've lost the service manuals. Does the library have any information on small engine repair?

Yes, we have a database specifically for small engine repair that covers lawn mowers and trimmers, as well as other machines like ATVs, boat motors, tractors, motorcycles and more. Go to our Research & Learn tab, click on the alphabetical list, and look for Small Engine Repair. Select the type of machine you have and look for its make and model.
