About Capitol Hill Library 

The Capitol Hill Library opened in its current location in November of 1951. In 1965, it joined the Metropolitan Library System. In 2007, Oklahoma City voters approved a bond issue to renovate Capitol Hill. The renovated library opened in October 2017 with an additional 9,400 square feet (now totaling 17,000 square feet), a large meeting room, four private study rooms, a children's area, a teen area, and new computers.

Today, Capitol Hill Library serves the diverse residents of the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood in south Oklahoma City, a block away from historic Commerce Street, or Calle dos Cinco.

Book drop location: On the southeast corner of the building.
