The grand reopening of Tulsa’s Central Library, which had been expected this summer, has been pushed back to the fall.

More than two years and $50 million have gone into renovating downtown’s 51-year-old Central Library.

Central Library, part of the Tulsa City-County Library system, will hold its grand reopening Oct. 1, with staff and furnishings likely moving into the updated building in mid-August, CEO Gary Shaffer said.

The library, located at Fourth Street and Denver Avenue, was built in 1965 and is approximately 135,000 square feet.

Last month the Christian County Library submitted the final report for a Racing to Read Early Literacy Grant for $6,211.00 awarded in the fall of 2015.

This grant funded the interactive toys and tools that are now a staple of all library story times, as well as a major part of the experience library visitors with children are seeking when they stop in the children’s section at either the Christian County Library or the Clever Public Library.
