eNewsletter Column

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.
