Throwback Thursday - 2001

Throwback Thursday - 2001

We had a busy year in 2001. We deepened our commitment to children and families with the debut of Family Place which transformed our libraries into centers for family support, life-long learning and emergent literacy. We also broke ground on a brand new Choctaw Library. The previous facility in a shopping center had been severely damaged by a tornado. Our monthly magazine and event calendar debuted in 2001 and we celebrated the Year of Ralph Ellison, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the publication of masterpiece novel Invisible Man.

Throwback Thursday - Party Like It's 1999

Throwback Thursday - Party Like It's 1999

We partied like it was 1999 long before 1999 came around. The biggest sensation of 1999 was, you guessed it, Y2K. The doomsday prophecy that would end all computers causing their robotic minds to fail us, leaving us in anarchy and chaos. This led the way for the doomsday preppers of the new millennium and most places upgraded their computer systems to avoid digital fallout.
