What is Books to Treasure?
The Tulsa City-County Library treasures books... but we treasure children more! That is the idea behind the Books To Treasure program, which has been around since 2003. The goal is to celebrate the beauty and power of children’s literature and inspire a love of reading in children. Sponsored by the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation since its inception, Books To Treasure has grown into a Tulsa tradition for all second-grade students in Tulsa County. These youngsters receive a free copy of a treasured illustrator's book, the chance to get their very own library card, and an opportunity to see the illustrator in person and get their books signed!
How Do 2nd Graders Get a Library Card for Books To Treasure 2022?
Second grade teachers in Tulsa and Tulsa County schools will have Books To Treasure library card applications and Tulsa City-County Library staff will coordinate with them to get library cards to second graders at schools.
However, parents and guardians of 2nd graders may go to any library branch location (child must be with them) to get a special Books To Treasure library card.
