About Southern Oaks Library
Southern Oaks Library opened its doors in its current location in 1975. This library serves the diverse educational, informational and cultural needs of south Oklahoma City and Oklahoma County. On September 25, 2012, a renovated Southern Oaks Library opened, showcasing its expansion from 16,000 square feet to 20,000 square feet. This modernized library has plush reading lounges, a large teen area and over 40 public use computers. Southern Oaks Library is the second library in the Metropolitan Library System to use an automated material return sorter. This sorter automatically directs a returned material to one of up to 20 different location-specific bins for delivery around the Metro Library System. Automating this process helps us save time and get materials back on the shelves faster and with fewer steps. Local sculptor Joe Slack designed several sculptures outside the library entitled “Cover to Cover.”
