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.
From kitchen cabinets to school auditoriums, everyday occurrences seem larger than life through a child’s eyes.
Families are invited to explore and discover dozens of big trucks, automobiles, trains, planes and a helicopter, during “Touch-A-Truck.” Tulsa City-County Library’s Martin Regional Library, 2601 S. Garnett Road, will transform the parking lot into a child’s perfect playground, Aug. 2, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
“Touch-A-Truck is an exciting and hands-on family event,” said Marie Welden, Martin Regional Library’s children’s area supervisor. “It’s a great opportunity for children of all ages to see familiar and maybe some not familiar vehicles up close. They can touch, explore and perhaps sit in the driver’s seat of vehicles they see every day.”
Participating organizations include PSO/AEP, Tulsa Fire Department, Tulsa Police Department, EMSA, Green Country Ultra Sport Flyers, Ice Cream on Wheels, Tulsa Garden Railroad Club, News on 6, Tulsa’s Channel 8, Police Explorers Club, Shredders Inc., Shriners and Tulsa RV Sales. John Dellavadova will provide family music during the program to keep toes tapping as families view the vehicles.
“Touch-A-Truck” is sponsored by Flint Family Foundation and Tulsa City-County Library, with additional support provided by the Mary K. Chapman Foundation and George Kaiser Family Foundation.
