About This Section
When you read a book, you enter a different world.  But the act of reading does more than broaden our world-view; it creates empathy, and nurtures civility.  

Occassionally in our monthly newsletter, you'll hear a new voice: Rebecca Howard.  During her 15 years with Tulsa City-County Library, Rebecca launched the readers advisory service Your Next Great Read, and served as TCCL’s county-wide Literacy Coordinator.  Now, Rebecca is a regional manager, overseeing six branches of TCCL.   

In Imprint Rebecca will share her thoughts about the reader’s life, the community of the library, and, if we ask REALLY nicely, the occasional recommendation.  

  • I believe reading to be an activity that is less about outcome and more about experience. The act of reading is the thing itself. Even when you cannot remember details, you will often remember your response. In this way, I think that every book you read has the potential to be transformative.
  • If you are a reader and a Gen-Xer like me, Stephen King and Anne Rice probably played pivotal roles in your adolescence. And even though my adult reading doesn’t include a lot of horror titles, I fully understand their appeal. So do many others, it seems.
