The Peggy Helmerich Library will be closed temporarily for light renovation. We anticipate the closure to last several weeks. During the closure, any items you have placed on hold will be sent to Hardesty Library.
Designed by Tulsa architect Frank W. Wallace, the ORU Prayer Tower became operational in early 1967. This Tulsa landmark is 196 feet tall, houses 99 bells, has the capability to sustain a 6 foot plume of flame, and cost more than $1 million to build.
