Mrs. Norberg was a very active friend of libraries in Oklahoma for more than 40 years,
generously volunteering her time, monetary contributions, and devoted efforts to the cause of libraries
in Tulsa and throughout the state. She was a member of the statewide committee which drafted the
bill to establish city-county and multi-county library systems in the state, and campaigned for
the passage of the county questions which created and funded the Tulsa City-County Library System.
Prior to that, in 1957, she helped organize the Tulsa Friends of the Library and was actively involved
in establishing many other Friends groups throughout the state of Oklahoma over the years.
Lillian served on the Tulsa Library Trust for 15 years beginning in 1974 and as an officer of the
Tulsa Friends on numerous occasions. She chaired FOLIO, Friends of Libraries in Oklahoma, and served
on the Board of FOLUSA, the national Friends organization.
She received an OLA Citizens Award in 1981, was among the first named to the FOLIO Hall of Fame in
2000, and was one of the first American Library Association Advocates Hall of Fame inductees in 2000.
Oklahoma libraries would not be the same had we not had Lillian Norberg among us.
