From Tulsa Public Radio:
After a three-year closure for a top-to-bottom, inside and out renovation, Tulsa’s Central Library reopens Saturday at 11 a.m.
The makeover hasn’t been just about looks. Tulsa City-County Library CEO Gary Shaffer promised patrons are getting a 21st Century library out of the $50 million overhaul.
A group from Portland, Oregon, named the Burgeon Group specializes in making early literacy interactive play areas for public libraries, and they’ve created an amazing place for us,” said Stacy Morehead, the Central Library assistant manager for the children’s department. “An alphabet whirligig is the first thing you’ll see when you walk in, and we’ve got a science tower, a garden café tower, and each one has different types things that kids can learn while they’re playing.”
