We have a new member of the Literacy Team! Kathryn Herron has recently started work as our new Office Manager. We are so happy to have her! We asked her to introduce herself:  My name is Kathryn Herron, and I am the new Administrative Assistant. I have worked for the Tulsa City-County Library for close to five years, working for the Circulation department. I look forward to getting to know all of you and learning as much as I can about the Literacy department. My email is kherron@tulsalibrary.org.

Is your child struggling with his or her homework? We have some resources to help!

There are a couple of options the library offers to students who need help with their school work. The first is our Homework Help Now database, which can be accessed via our homepage. This database provides expert help in the form of live tutors that can communicate with students online. It also provides flash cards, practice tests, and other skill building tools. You can find the Homework Help icon on our homepage next to the rotating banner of current events.

Common As a Penny by Rebecca Howard

Rebecca Howard

Many of the books that I read are about common things—marriage, family, career—the stuff of everyday life. Often these types of books are unfairly categorized as women’s fiction, but I think taking our cue from the Young Adult genre, we should describe them as realistic fiction. There are no dystopian societies, serial killers, bank heists, spaceships, or demon overlords in these novels-- just mothers, daughters, sons, brothers, spouses, and partners. These novels mine the fields of ordinary for stories, showing us how the ordinary can be artful.
