About the Metropolitan Library System: 

In 2015, the Metropolitan Library System (MLS) celebrated a milestone – its 50th anniversary of services to the residents of Oklahoma County. This large, diverse system of suburban, urban and rural libraries serves the nearly 800,000 residents of Oklahoma County through 19 libraries. The Library’s mission, “we grow smarter communities, one person at a time”, speaks to its vision “to be the community’s hub for critical thinking, creative problem-solving and lifelong enrichment". With exciting programs like “Let’s Talk About It, Oklahoma: Piecing the Quilt, Stirring the Stew: Ethnic American Women’s Voices”, resources for learning and job preparedness, family game fests, teen advisory boards and Lego robotics, the Library reaches out to serve the interests of people of all ages. The appointed Metropolitan Library Commission of Oklahoma County consists of 27 voting members who represent each municipality with a library or library extension located within its boundaries, as well as the Mayor of Oklahoma City and an Oklahoma County Commissioner. The Friends of the Library raise funds and advocate for the library. The Library Endowment Trust provides a means for private contributions to be invested on a permanent basis so that they can meet the future needs of the library.

This position will be assigned to the Maintenance Department located at the Library Service Center, 300 NE 50th, Oklahoma City, OK 73105.
