About Justin

 

The library is named in honor of Justin McCurry, a young man with developmental disabilities who worked in the Developmental Disabilities Council of Oklahoma offices from 2000 until his death in 2004. 

Justin was passionate about his work and well-loved by council members and staff. He was an avid fan of the Green Bay Packers; the logo for the library named for him was designed with a small green letter G in the spine of the book, as a subtle tribute to Justin's beloved team.
