Past, Present and Future: The Tulsa City-County Library

Concept of new first floor

It used to be that when you went to a book repository you had to look up a book in a catalog or index, then go up to a librarian and make a request for him or her to retrieve it for you.

In 1965, the Tulsa City-County Library reformed our idea of what a library is, becoming one of the first in the nation to use today's standard of browsing books in an "Open Library."

Today, the library continues to serve all members of the community, serving as a gateway to resources for students, young and old, families, community groups, entrepreneurs and large businesses.

As our culture continues to evolve in the way we learn and gather as a community, this video unveils the concept design for Central Library that the architects of MS&R (Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle, Ltd., and associate architect Crafton Tull Associates, Inc., created for reinvigorating Tulsa City-County Library for the next 50 years.
