The Tulsa City-County Library is holding a public meeting tonight for residents, library customers and stakeholders to see the unveiling of the concepts for the Central Library renovations.
The meeting is from 6 to 7 p.m. Monday in the Aaronson Auditorium at Central Library, Fourth Street and Denver Avenue.
Project leaders Jeffrey Scherer and Traci Lesneski of Meyer, Scherer and Rockcastle Ltd. will share their building plans, and those in attendance will be able to give feedback on the concepts to library staff, architects and designers.
The Central Library, opened in 1965, is in need of updates to its mechanical systems and technology, as well as more energy-efficient elements.
The downtown library has more than 416,000 visits a year, more than any other library branch in the TCCL system, and it hosts more than 875 events annually.
