I'd like to find out who owns a piece of property up the street from me. Can I access the County Land Records at the library?

Yes, the library does have access to the Tulsa County Land Records. Using these databases, you can look up residential and commercial properties by address, owner, subdivision, and more. You can also access the Land Records to find out information about your own property, such as square footage, year built, and tax details. If you are looking to buy a home, it's also a good resource to see if your potential new home has any existing liens before you buy.

Leighton Avery, Son Of A Highway Man

James Leighton Avery, son of Cyrus Avery, graduated from Tulsa's Central High School in 1921.  The caption accompanying his senior photograph reads, "Page the debater. Here we have him. In the winter he is a most polished 'city-slicker.' In the summer he changes to agriculturist on his own farm. Distinguishing trait--Oratory. Pet peeve--Spelling. Disposition--Obliging."
