Schedule Appointment

ODL has moved to an appointment-only service model during the COVID-19 pandemic

The Oklahoma Department of Libraries is committed to continuing to provide services during the public health crisis. In order to protect our staff and our customers, appointments are required to access our building and physical collections.

Providing service by appointment will allow us to follow CDC guidelines for social distancing and allow staff time to disinfect surfaces between appointments.

What to expect when visiting

Schedule appointment with one of the divisions below. Please call (405) 522-3505 to notify the front desk upon arrival. If you do not have a cellphone, please use the doorbell next to the front door. Masks are required for anyone visiting state buildings. All state employees will be wearing masks in common areas and when around people. Hand sanitizer stations are setup throughout the building.
