Past, Present and Future: The Tulsa City-County Library

Concept for the main entry

It used to be that when you went to a book repository you had to look up a book in a catalog or index, then go up to a librarian and make a request for him or her to retrieve it for you.

In 1965, the Tulsa City-County Library reformed our idea of what a library is, becoming one of the first in the nation to use today's standard of browsing books in an "Open Library."

Today, the library continues to serve all members of the community, serving as a gateway to resources for students, young and old, families, community groups, entrepreneurs and large businesses.
