    OKLAHOMA CITY - BETHANY — Officials are looking at a mid-August construction start for Bethany's new public library, to be funded largely from an $8.1 million bond that voters approved in April 2016.

    Contractors are expected to begin bidding on the project in June, following final approval of architectural plans for the library to be built on the site of Bethany's now-closed library at 3510 N Mueller Ave.
