About the Capitol Hill Library

The Capitol Hill Library opened in its current location in November of 1951. In 1965, it joined the Metropolitan Library System. In 2007, Oklahoma City voters approved a bond issue to renovate Capitol Hill. The renovated library opened in October 2017 with an additional 9400 square feet (now totaling 17,000 square feet), a large meeting room, 4 private study rooms, a children's area, a teen area, and new computers.

The Capitol Hill Library is located in south Oklahoma City. The library serves a diverse group of residents of various ages, races and ethnic groups. Young families continue to utilize the library for school, personal information needs, and overall self-improvement, and there is an ongoing appreciation of the library as a viable resource needed for the ongoing community building process.

Book drop location: On the southeast corner of the building.
