Tulsa City-County Library is looking to the public to name Central Library's temporary location.
In September, Central Library will close in order to begin its renovation, which is expected to last two years.

While Central Library is under construction, a temporary facility, located at 11th Street and Denver Avenue, will house the library's services.
A contest through Tulsa City-County Library will decide the name of the temporary location.
Entries will be accepted through March 21 and can be dropped off at any Tulsa City-County Library branch.
Name submissions should reflect the culture and spirit of Tulsa and support the library's mission of “Libraries change lives.”
The top three entries will be selected for a public vote online, April 13-18. The winner will receive a Kindle Fire, and each runner-up will receive a Kindle e-reader.
