Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my! It's not what you'd expect to see a your local library, but the jungle theme is all the rage in Owasso, where the town's library featured a grand reopening Tuesday.

The Owasso library, at 103 W Broadway, added a new 3,500-foot section and enlarged the current children book section. But the highlight is the jungle, the children's section now boasts of a huge rainforest mural. Branch manager, Barbara Barnes, "It's so exciting, so inviting, a child could start at the mural for ages and find something new to look at."

The murals were painted by students at Broken Arrow's South Intermediate High School.
