About Bethany Library

The Bethany Library opened on January 31, 1965 and joined the Metropolitan Library System later that year. West Oklahoma City residents, as well as residents of Bethany, are the primary users of this library, borrowing hundreds of thousands of books and other materials each year. On April 5, 2016, Bethany voters approved a bond issue to build a new Bethany Library that would be nearly three times the size of the current library. On November 16, 2019, the renovated Bethany Library opened.

Book drop: Drive-up return on the west side of the building.
