Don't Miss the Penguin Book Truck!

The Penguin Book Truck is back in Tulsa! If you didn't get a chance to visit the truck at Guthrie Green on Wednesday, you'll have another opportunity tonight at the First Friday Art Crawl in the Brady District. The Book Truck should be around from 6-9 offering all sorts of great Penguin books for sale. The best part, as far as we are concerned? They are donating a percentage of all their sales to the Ruth G. Hardman Adult Literacy Service! So, tell your friends, post it to Facebook, spread the word. We appreciate it!

Supporting The Central Library Renewed Project is as Easy as Swiping Your Debit Card

Tulsa City-County Library and Oklahoma Central Credit Union are teaming up to offer "My Tulsa Library Community Card," featuring an artist rendering of the renewed Central Library (see card image on the left).  Each time the card is used, a donation will be made to the Central Library Renewed capital campaign.

The Visa Debit Card is available with an Oklahoma Central Credit Union checking account and provides members access to their funds without writing a check.  There are no annual fees and it can be used anywhere Visa is accepted.

The Thrill of It All by Cindy Hulsey

There is nothing more thrilling than discovering a new author.  As a librarian I’m exposed to numerous new authors and titles, and it can be daunting to sift through all of them to find the gems. New books are often disappointing, but occasionally I’ll find one that makes me count the minutes until I can race home, fling open the pages and spend time with characters who are so real they jump off the page.  I recently found such a book by first novelist Rebecca Rotert called Last Night at the Blue Angel.
