Come November, the City of Tulsa will ask voters to decide on a capital improvement bond totalling near $919 million. The City Council approved a list of projects and now plans to offer a series of town halls to get feedback from the community. The majority of the proposed projects are street related though slated projects provide for improvements to facilites across Tulsa, including the Central Library (full disclosure).

The book for July’s Book Club meeting is Mr. Tucket by Gary Paulsen. Join us for an action-packed Western read with galloping horses, shooting rifles, heroes (and the inevitable scoundrels), fur trapping (and one kidnapping), settlers, Indians and prairie ethics. This is a rollicking tale told by a Newberry Honor award winning master storyteller whose stories often appeal to reluctant readers.
Please remember the following key points as you talk with your friends, family, co-workers and City Councilors about the importance of including Central Library in the City of Tulsa’s new capital improvement funding plan.
Thank You, City Leaders, for Your Vision and Support
