How many times have you read a book because a friend raved about it? The Springfield-Greene County Library staff is compiling a list, “Read to Lead,” by asking community leaders about their book recommendations.

We’re continuing this series with an additional focus: TED Talks. In February, the Library was granted the opportunity to stream one day of the live TED Talk International Conference. On July 19, some of Springfield’s most innovative and inspiring people will present their own TEDx Talks at the Library Center. We’ve asked those speakers to share books and TED Talks that are... read more

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.

The St. Charles Community College Board of Trustees has named four finalists who are under consideration to fill the soon-to-be vacant college president position.

The candidates are: Darrel L. Cain, vice chancellor for student affairs at Ivy Tech Community College System in Indiana; Cliff Davis, president of Table Rock campus and system vice chancellor at Ozarks Technical Community College; Barbara R. Kavalier, district president at Navarro College in Texas; and Ted Lewis, president of academic affairs at Pellissippi State College in Tennessee.

A student-painted mural titled, “Plan, Learn, Care, Create, Serve” was unveiled at Crowder College Wednesday. The mural is on display at the Lee Library on the Neosho Campus. Library Director Eric Deatherage tells News Talk KZRG what the artwork represents.

“It is designed to represent the connection between the library and different jobs and service positions in society.”

Deatherage adds that the students got a lot out of working on the piece.

“As they were going through working on the mural they got to learn about different methods and different styles.”
