Click on the present to the left to visit the Library Gift Shop. A portion of the proceeds from purchases made through the gift shop will benefit Tulsa City-County Library’s campaign to renovate the Central Library.
The renovated Central Library will feature the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation Education and Ideation Center, a place where children and teens learn as well as engage and create. This will be a center for ideation where young minds will be cultivated and adult educators will come together to help solve the unique challenges they are experiencing in their classrooms, schools and districts.
A new Tulsa Central Library Renewed sign has been placed on Denver at 5th Street to inform the public that renovation of the Central Library is underway. It includes a beautiful architectural rendering depicting the main entrance to the library and the new parking garage as they will be seen from 5th Street.
The photo shows equipment in the lower basement where the slab has been cut to accommodate new underground plumbing. Upstairs, demolition of elevator door frames and plaster in the stairways continues. With the security fence in place, demolition can begin on the planters at the south end of the library.
The exterior library sign at the north end of the Central Library was recently removed. The demolition of the loading dock was completed and the removal of the river rock panels continues on the exterior. Inside, the demolition of stairs and the elevators will make way for new ones soon.
