Sally Frasier ImageA well-known community volunteer in Tulsa, Sally Frasier has served more than 20 years on the Tulsa City-County Library Commission. She took an active role right from the start, and served as chair of most of its committees, and Chair of the Commission 1992-94. Sally was also appointed to the Urban Libraries Council Executive Board, on which she served from 1990 to 1999. She was Secretary for 3 years and Legislative Committee chair for 4 of those years.

In addition, Mrs. Frasier was invited to join the University of Oklahoma Advisory Board to the School of Library and Information Studies from 1995 to 1999, and served on the American Library Association Task Force to Revise the Library Services and Construction Act 1995-1997. In 1994 she was awarded OLA’s Citizen’s Recognition Award, and was recognized in 1996 as one of ALA’s Legislative Grass Roots Library Champions. She was inducted into the Tulsa Library System’s Hall of Fame in 1997 and won an ALA-ALTA Citizen Advocacy Award in 2000.

Throughout her years of involvement with libraries, Sally worked most diligently in the area of legislative changes. She visited Oklahoma state legislators on behalf of libraries for many years, and has done the same with Oklahoma’s Washington legislators. She has been an effective advocate for libraries across the nation, but especially in Oklahoma.
