Tulsa Library System

Phone: (918) 746-5222

 Main website -

 The Downtown or "Central" Library has all of the Tulsa World and Tulsa Tribune Newspapers on Microfilm. The Reference Section has Tulsa Co phone books, City Directories, maps, index cards of newspaper obits up to something like 1959 or so and reference material of all kinds on Tulsa. If you park in the underground lot you can get your parking ticket validated at the library. However, depending on the time of day and the day of the week parking can be major hassle in the underground parking lot which serves both the library and the courthouse. Reasonably priced parking can be found close if you don't mind walking a block or so. If you need a copy of an obit your best bet is to try the Tulsa Genealogy Library first and the Tulsa Genealogy Society next. For copies of items from the newspapers, early phone books and city directories (or anything else) there is a 10.00 research fee for folks out of state (see letter from library) - however, the Library will do inter-library loan that works this way. You contact your local library and request an inter-library loan for certain surnames out of the phone book or city directory. The Library will COPY those pages and send the copies to your library for just the cost of the copies. Much cheaper if you are out of state. If you need other types of copies or research contact me as I do this for a small fee.
