On the afternoon of February 24, Library Commissioners, County Commissioners, Tulsa Library Trust members, donors and friends gathered to say goodbye to the last remaining sign of the old Central Library. Within seconds after the signal was given by Library CEO Gary Shaffer, the Central Library sign at the corner of 5th Street and Denver was brought down. See the complete demolition in the attached video.
The renovated Central Library will feature the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation Education and Ideation Center, a place where children and teens learn as well as engage and create. This will be a center for ideation where young minds will be cultivated and adult educators will come together to help solve the unique challenges they are experiencing in their classrooms, schools and districts.
