Librarium is a fully functional branch AND a testing facility to better serve the 21st century customer. Opened in September, 2013, Librarium is the temporary library serving downtown Tulsa until the Central Library's renovation is complete.

Today’s library customer wants more than just a large collection of hard-copy books. More than ever, our society has a growing desire to access, consume and share content using digital tools. We want places to gather for events and hold meetings, and we like to work alongside others. We expect Wi-Fi access, and we appreciate a comfortable environment. We want to expand our minds with maker spaces and learn how to use new technology such as tablets. We also want entertainment, and we certainly don’t mind a cup of coffee while we’re at it.

Librarium is all of this and more. In addition to serving as a fully functional branch, Librarium is a testing facility to learn better ways to serve our customers based on 21st century needs. For example, all materials are arranged based on subject, similar to most retail bookstores, rather than the Dewey Decimal System. And we explore the latest technology, from customer service machines to handheld devices for customers to check out.

Come here to easily find materials, to gather with friends and colleagues or to lose yourself in a great book on a quiet afternoon. Care to borrow a tablet for your reading? We have that. Need an office away from the office? Our self-service business center and computer stations will do the trick.

Whatever your needs, we look forward to serving you at Librarium.
