History : The library features separate childrens and adult areas, study areas, a book capacity of 23,000, a community meeting room with an amphitheater setting which seats 75 and a catering kitchen. The exterior of the residential frame building is buff color masonry giving a limestone appearance. There is an arched entrance with columns and originally a clock which has now been replaced with a stained glass window depicting the oil industry which was the origin of Glenpool. A dark roof with two chimney structures and a band of clerestory glass blocks windows providing natural light complete the structure. The structure proved sound by weathering a tornado in 1992. Carol Thomas was the first librarian in the leased location. She was followed by Laurie Sundborg in 1990 who became the first librarian in the new permanent location. Jim Hoffman was next, followed by Julie McClelland, Cheryl Newman and Michelle Raine. Ron Cook is presently serving as library manager.
