The hours are:
Monday – Friday, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., and Saturdays 10:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m. 
On June 1st, we will reopen the library for limited services while still offering curbside pickup!

Customers can now begin using our
WEBSITE CATALOG
to put items on “Hold”, and pick out materials.

For Curbside Pickup starting May 18,
we will begin pulling all the hold requests received, and we will contact you by
calling, emailing or texting (depending on your account settings for contact preferences)
letting each patron know their materials are available for pickup.
For those who would prefer to speak directly with a librarian,
please call 918-338-4171 beginning Monday, May 18
and place your materials “order”.

When you receive a notification that your order is ready, please enter the parking lot at
Fifth and Johnstone
and pull into one of the 6 marked pickup spaces.
Remain in your car,
call the number on the sign in front of you and let us know you are here.
We will promptly deliver your requested materials right to your car!

For everyone’s security, we ask that you
hold up an ID against your driver’s window
(leaving your window up)
allowing us to verify that we are delivering the materials to the correct vehicle.
We will place your order either in the back seat or in your trunk.

For everyone’s safety, returned library materials remain
exclusively received through the book drops!
The returned books will undergo a 72-hour quarantine and sanitation before they will be placed back into circulation.

We are so excited to be able to serve you again and can’t wait until we can welcome you back inside the library in June!

Announcing our 2019 Summer Reading Program, “A Universe of Stories!”

Readers of all ages will explore the Universe this summer as the Bartlesville Public Library presents “A Universe of Stories.” Activities for children include space-themed crafts, storytelling, STEM projects, science experiments, magic, juggling, acrobatics, and more. Just some of the events for teens are a Sci-Fi Trivia night, Sci-Fi board game demos (both co-sponsored and hosted by Paper Games), a painting class, a very cool presentation by a member of the Bartlesville Astronomical Society, a “special” movie screening, and some great STEAM activities. We’ll end with a Grand Finale Pool Party at Frontier Pool for both age groups and their families! (See separate “Event” postings for program
details.)

Participants may sign up any time beginning on May 4th. Beginning on June 3rd, they will let us know each week what they’ve been reading or had read to them, for a small prize. Each Monday morning during June & July, we will draw a weekly prize winner from each age category, including everyone who reported to us that previous week. You need not be here for the drawing. What should you read? Absolutely anything you want to read! What could you win? Free books, movie passes, and a variety of other fun things! 

BPL’s Summer Reading Program is locally funded by the Bartlesville Friends of the Library. Much thanks to this wonderful organization!
