Tulsa Central Library Asking for Funds for New Facility

Posted: Updated:

The Tulsa Central Library is in the midst of a fundraising campaign to establish itself as a cutting-edge, technologically-sound library in Tulsa.

The cost of the renovations are roughly $50 million, and the Tulsa City-County Library and Tulsa Library Trust are nearing that number in terms of funds raised.

The trust is now asking for the Tulsa community to help them raise $1 million as they hope to finalize the project.

The library trust provided several ways Tulsans can contribute to the fundraising campaign: by placing a name donor wall in Central Library or purchasing an electronic bookplate in the library's catalog record; by purchasing select "Libraries Change Lives" items from the Tulsa Library gift shop (portion of proceeds will go to the campaign); purchasing a "Libraries Change Lives" bracelet from any Tulsa library.

Two public fundraising events will be held in June. The first is at Panera Bread at both the 41st and Hudson and 15th and Utica locations from 4-8 p.m. June 5. The second is June 18 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Mayo Hotel Penthouse Rooftop Bar and Lounge.
