The City of Tulsa Parks and Recreation Department and Tulsa Community College have partnered with local non-profit Transporting Education and Literacy into Open Spaces, Inc. (T.E.L.O.S., Inc.) for the grand opening events for the Tulsa Little Free Libraries Project.
T.E.L.O.S., Inc. aims to advance literacy and education initiatives in community settings. The Tulsa Little Free Libraries Project is a nationally known, “Take a book, leave a book program” that will open at 15 Tulsa City parks and playgrounds.
“I’m thrilled that Tulsa Parks is involved in making these little libraries accessible to children. We want to do our part to help close the literacy gap in Tulsa by placing little libraries in our public parks,” said Lucy Dolman, Tulsa Parks Director. “It’s also a great way we can make a positive difference in their young lives and inspire them to be life-long readers.”
Two grand opening events will take place in April when the first little libraries in the project will be built. The public is invited to join us at the following upcoming events to help install each little library, participate in story time and additional activities for the kids.
Reed Park, 4233 S. Yukon Ave.
Saturday, April 7, 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Turner Park, 3503 E. 5th St.
Sunday, April 15, 1 – 3:30 p.m.
