Tulsa City-County Library Reopens
DISTINGUISHED SPEAKERS: Author Michael Wallis speaks from the lecturn during the opening of the new Tulsa City-County Centrel Library. Among the dignitaries participating were former Library CEO Gary Shaffer, Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett, Jr., former Tulsa Mayor Robert LaFortune and writer Judy Randle.
After a three-year closure to undergo a $50-million renovation, a spectacular Central Library grand opening was held Oct. 1 at Fifth Street and Denver Avenue. Remarks from distinguished guests and Tulsa City-County Library administrators were held. A celebration with a ribbon release, daytime fireworks and confetti immediately preceded the 11 a.m. library opening.
The grand opening featured fun for the whole family throughout the day.
