With the interior of the Central Library reduced to the concrete floors and columns, you can see the strength required to support the weight of many books. The photo is taken from the third floor looking down to the second floor where the grand staircase was located.
Piles of bricks and mortar continue to accumulate as interior walls are removed from the Central Library. The Children's Garden will be located on the west side of the renovated library, shown in the photo.
Central Library's Aaronson Auditorium, shown in this photo during demolition, will be redesigned and continue to honor the legacy of Alfred E. Aaronson who led the campaign in the early 1960's to form what is now the Tulsa City-County Library.
You may not see a lot of activity on the Denver Avenue side of the Central Library, but the dumpsters are filling up on the west side. Go to the library's Flickr to see a collection of photos documenting the Central Library's renovation.
