About Wright Library 

Wright Library opened in 1925 in its current location at 2101 Exchange in historic Stockyard City. This library, born out of community effort, has small town charm with big city technology. At the Wright Library, customers can enjoy the Old West surroundings of the bustling main street while using current technologies such as free WiFi and internet access.

Community engagement and early literacy are encouraged at the Wright Library with kid-friendly programming on Saturdays plus popular interest activities for all ages. The Summer Reading program offers incentives for readers of all ages, and weekly Neighborhood Arts performances in June and July bring entertainment and culture to the community each year.

Located near the Oklahoma River, Wright Library is positioned in an area steeped with Oklahoma history and surrounded by the beauty of natural Oklahoma only a short distance from the culture and commerce of downtown.

Book drop location: East side of the building.
