About Midwest City Library

The Midwest City Library began in the 1950s with a collection of donated books. By the 1960s it was located in a 4500-square-foot area at the Municipal Golf Course and had became a part of the Metropolitan Library System. In the 1980s a bond issue was passed and the current 36,000-square-foot facility was built and opened in September of 1987. On permanent display in the lobby is the painting Summer Skies, Oklahoma by Wilson Hurley.
