Tulsa mayor G.T. Bynum kicked off the Tulsa City-County Library summer reading program with story time in Central Library's new Tandy Children's Garden.

"In the light of the moon, a little egg laid on a leaf," he read.

In 2017, A Gathering Place is extending the reading challenge into the school year, asking Tulsa County students to read two million books before the park opens next spring or summer.
