Light Summer Reads

I don’t know about you, but when Oklahoma’s hot sticky weather arrives I find it difficult to read dark, dreary books. It takes too much energy. I suggest you enjoy a margarita by the pool or curl up under the air conditioning with a glass of lemonade and sink into one of these feel-good books.

50th Birthday Hard Hat Tour

On June 16, major donors for the renovation of the Central Library, city and county officials, Library Commissioners, Tulsa Library Trust members, and the Capital Campaign committee helped us celebrate the 50th Birthday of the Central Library which opened in June 1965.  Guests donned hard hats for tours of the Central Library, with guides taking them to areas on the first level where the Tech Lounge, Making Lab, Audio Lab, Self Service Center, Coffee Shop, Self Check, Meeting Room and Childrens Library will be located.
