Terry Bradshaw's Communities of Distinction TV show features Librarium

Communities of Distinction, a syndicated TV show hosted by former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw, is set to feature Tulsa City-County Library's exciting advancements happening at Librarium, 11th and Denver. Tune in to ION KTPX-TV channel 44, Cox channel 4 or DTV channel 28 on:

Ninety Percent

At the Central Library, 90% of the demolition to the interior of the building is complete.  That means in a few months construction will begin!

Bare Bones

With the interior of the Central Library reduced to the concrete floors and columns, you can see the strength required to support the weight of many books.  The photo is taken from the third floor looking down to the second floor where the grand staircase was located.

Bricks and Mortar

Piles of bricks and mortar continue to accumulate as interior walls are removed from the Central Library.  The Children's Garden will be located on the west side of the renovated library, shown in the photo.
