Remember to update your contact information!

In recent weeks we’ve made calls to about a dozen people with disconnected phone numbers.  If your phone number(s) change, or you obtain a new email address, or even move residences, please remember to update your contact information with the literacy office at 918-549-7400.

In addition, in order to be more green, the Tulsa City-County Library will no longer mail library notifications through the postal system.  Make sure the library has your email address on file and/or a working phone number so that you can continue to receive notifications!
