TCCL's Shaffer & Runnel's Cherokee Language Work Profiled in Library Journal

Tulsa City-County Library's CEO Gary Shaffer and its American Indian Resource Center Coordinator and Assistant Branch Manager Teresa Runnels both Library Journal Movers & Shakers were once again featured in the publication for their efforts in getting the first indigenous language (Cherokee) on the Mango Language digital library platform. Both worked tirelessly to advocate with the Nation and the vendor to get the two connected and the language in the Mango application. It is now free for library customers at over 2000 public libraries across the nation to download to their mobile device or PC. Now the diaspora and other interested parties can start to learn this endangered language.
