About Jones Library 

On December 17, 2016, the town of Jones, OK received an early Christmas gift: a new 3,000-square-foot library building. Library services originated in Jones in 1976 with a bookmobile, but in 1998, the bookmobile was replaced with a 450-square-foot portable building.  After almost 20 years in that small location, the new library includes twice the collection of the previous library. It also includes four computers for library members and visitors to use and two special computers for children, as well as a large community meeting room that can be used by the public and free WiFi throughout the building.

In the early 1900s, the town of Jones was strategically located to take maximum advantage of the railroad for shipping, commuting to work, and traveling to Tulsa or Oklahoma City for shopping and entertainment.  Now, visitors can take a drive east from Oklahoma City down Britton Road and stop at the state of the art library at 9295 Willa Way - named after County Commissioner Willa Johnson.

Book drop location: - It is the big metal box to the left of the entrance on the front of the building.
