Tulsa opens new regional library showplace

I haven’t posted much on LISNews in the past month or so. The simple reason is that Hardesty Public Library, where I work, has been in the middle of a move to our new facility. Last Sunday was our grand opening celebration, and now we’re back in business.

I have a few links to give you an idea of why I’m so excited. Our new home is two stories, more than twice the size of the old one, and brand new. Designed by Kinslow, Keith, and Todd with Beck and Associates, it features a gorgeous children’s area that evokes a tropical island, nearly 100 public computer stations, and an in-house cafe run by one of Tulsa’s most respected caterers. If you’re in the Tulsa area, stop by for one of our upcoming events, or just come in and browse. I’m sure you’ll be very favorably impressed!
