About Choctaw Library 

The Choctaw Library was a bookmobile until 1978, when it moved into a room at the Tri-City Youth and Family Center. In 1985, the library moved to the east side of the center. Tornado damage to the building caused it to close on May 3, 1999. The library reopened in another temporary location in the Choctaw Plaza on July 26, 2000. On January 20, 2004, the library opened in its current location.

Book drop: On the north side of the building just to the right of the entrance.
