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.
The 2057 time capsule was buried in Veteran's Park on Veteran's Day weekend, November 10, 2007. It is 15 feet long, five feet in diameter, made from half-inch thick carbon steel and assembled by Boyle Services with materials and fabricating assistance C.G. Martin, Prescor and Port City Metal Services. The capsule was pumped full with inert gas, forcing out oxygen and moisture. This event was the work of the Junior League of Tulsa and Tulsa's Young Professionals.
The Myers-Duren Harley Davidson dealership donated the 2007 Street Glide with a custom blue denim paint job that retails for about $20,000. It borrows much of the styling of the 1965 Electra Glide Harley's, but has modern touches like a six-speed transmission, CD-player, and weather band radio. Also included in the time capsule was a laptop computer, a cell phone, and an iPod.
