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. Local sculptor Joe Slack designed several sculptures outside the library entitled “Cover to Cover.”

Book drop location: On the east side of the building.
