Community leaders have joined forces with students from Cascia Hall’s Library Advisory Council to promote literacy in downtown Tulsa through the development of the area’s first Little Free Library.

The project has been a labor of love for Cascia Hall’s librarian and several students, along with two community spirited landlords, says Ashley Hudgeons, vice president of communications and government relations for Hillcrest HealthCare System.

Hillcrest is especially engaged in this project as a proud “next door neighbor” and champion for the revitalization of this community nestled between historic Route 66 and Cherry Street.

A ceremony officially introducing Tulsans to the new Little Free Library at 12th Street and Rockford Avenue was held in October.

Present at the event were, pictured from left, Cascia Hall library advisory council members Joseph Barbour, Celyn Grigson, John Milanowski, and Margaret Barbour; Father Brian Barker; Cascia Hall Library Director Joan Hubble; and Forest Orchard Neighborhood Leader and volunteer Cleo Douglas.

In addition, Hillcrest plans to develop the land in the background of the photo into a community park.
