Due to construction, the Ralph Ellison Library and Southern Oaks Library are providing curbside services only until further notice. Watch our website for updates about their reopening.

Due to the number of buildings still without power, all Metro Library locations will be closed Thurs, 10/29.


All Metro Library locations are in the "Grab & Go" stage. In this stage, customers can come into a library to use a computer, print/copy/fax/scan, and briefly browse the shelves. Masks are required for entry into library facilities. Customers without a mask will be served by curbside service. Click here for more information.

Spoticus Pen Pal Program


We were recently inspired by Philbrook Museum of Art’s  Garden Cat Pen Pal  Program and when we shared what our friends Perilla the Garden Cat and Cleo the Garden Cat were up to in Tulsa, our beloved Library Dog, Spoticus, said he’d love to be a pen pal too!

Children can write Spoticus and he will send them a postcard back!

Letters or postcards for Spoticus should be sent to:


Ronald J. Norick Downtown Library

Attn: Spoticus

300 Park Avenue

Oklahoma City, OK 73102


Spoticus misses seeing you at the library and out in the community; he can’t wait to connect again soon via snail mail!


Don't have a stamp?

You can email Spoticus too!
