Throwback Thursday - 1973

Throwback Thursday - 1973

Welcome to the year we said goodbye to the hit NBC TV series Bonanza and the year when children were introduced to educational programming series Schoolhouse Rock!  1973 also brought some changes to the Metropolitan Library System. The Edmond Library moved to a new building at 10 S. Boulevard. Throughout each of our libraries, staff members began a systematic inventory of all the books and materials – the first in MLS history – in preparation for an automated circulation system.

True Detective Logo 2014

If you enjoyed HBO's crime drama True Detective last season and are anxiously awaiting its return on Sunday night, we've created a list of read alikes just for you. These books are mostly dark mysteries starring a detective type, with southern gothic elements and general weirdness (for bonus points). Head over to our catalog to see the full list or for our mobile users, here's the list:

Throwback Thursday - 1984

Throwback Thursday - 1984

It’s 1984 and not exactly the Orwellian vision of the same titled book written in 1948. In fact, it’s the era of shoulder pads, big hair, and John Hughes who will give us plenty of coming-of-age food for thought beginning with the hit movie, Sixteen Candles.

Throwback Thursday - 2007

Throwback Thursday - 2007

Welcome back to 2007! Oklahoma partied like it was 1907 this year in celebration of the Statehood Centennial. And while the CenTOONials kept spirits raised with their hilarious antics, MLS did its part by offering a number of creative programs like the Oklahoma Voices oral history project and the Oklahoma Moments video series. Also, after decades of planning, a plot of land at NW 122 and MacArthur was selected and purchased by Oklahoma City for the Northwest Library.

Donald Duck- Where are Your Pants?

Donald Duck- Where are Your Pants?

The original story of America’s favorite surly duck began 81 years ago on June 9. A creation of Walt Disney Productions, Donald Duck is widely known as Mickey Mouse’s sidekick, but his first appearance was in a Silly Symphony cartoon called The Wise Little Hen sans Mickey. Donald is known for his short fuse, and much like Yosemite Sam and rival Daffy Duck, he is prone to hopping, spitting temper tantrums. These tantrums lead him to become one of the most popular and enduring Disney characters.
