I've been hearing more lately about the benefits of organic foods and 'eating local'. Where can I find places in Tulsa that are a part of this trend?

You can find lists of such places on the library's Research page, using the subject guide titled 'Tulsa Food'. This guide provides a lot of great information for people who want to make some changes in their diet.

Now that school is out, I want to take my kids to some of the museums around town. Does the library have a list of the ones in the Tulsa area?

Yes, we do. You can find a list of local museums, as well as parks, swimming pools, and camps in our Tulsa Organizations and Services (or TOS) database. This database is a wealth of information on local groups, nonprofits, government agencies, professional associations, clubs, and more, and covers the cities within Tulsa County as well as a few other nearby areas. In most entries, TOS includes info such as address and phone numbers, links to outside websites, and brief descriptions of each group or organization and what they have to offer.
