Please join us for this VIRTUAL cooking class on the Bartlesville Public Library’s Facebook Page on Tuesday, November 3 at Noon. Susan Miller will demonstrate how to make two kinds of chili in the Instant Pot!

At this time, the cooking classes are only held live on the Bartlesville Public Library Facebook page. As soon as the meeting rooms open back up, we look forward to having the community attend in person.

Each #lifehacks class features a cooking basics segment, taught by instructors from Tri County Tech Chefs Tara Burkhead and Seth Day, and an adulting basics segment, which addresses how to accomplish an everyday task that adults commonly face.  These classes are geared for 16-23 year olds.

October’s #lifehacks cooking segment will feature making easy and budget-friendly Halloween snacks and party food.

The adulting basics segment will cover how to get a job. Laura Sanders, Human Resources Director for the City of Bartlesville, will discuss the basics of applying and interviewing for a job.

The class will take place on Thursday, October 29 starting at 4 pm.

The prerecorded cooking segment will be uploaded at 4:00 pm and the getting a job segment will be a Facebook Live event that will begin at 4:30 pm. Both the prerecorded cooking segment and the Facebook Live event can be viewed from the Library’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/bvillelibrary

This is a free class. For more information, please call the Reference desk at 918-338-4169.

Bartlesville Public Library –
Serving our community with excellence!

CARES Act funds granted to BPL.

We want to take a few minutes to share our cleaning and quarantine practices performed for the safety of our patrons and community. 

Bartlesville Public Library is following the REALM (Reopen Archives, Libraries and Museums) guidelines.

BPL receives returned materials via the outside drop boxes and a designated cart located outside of the circulation desk, then all returned materials are secured for a 72-hour quarantine.  After the 72-hour quarantine, all materials are inspected and then undergo individual UV light disinfection.

After the library materials are quarantined and disinfected, BPL staff returns the items to our circulating collection.  Staff does not check-in materials returned until after the quarantine and disinfection processes for their safety. When checked in, items are checked in as of the date they were returned by you, so that fines do not apply during the quarantine or disinfection period.

Additionally, we take extra care and attention inside the library. All BPL staff members wear masks at all times.  BPL staff disinfect and sanitize patron areas at regular intervals and immediately when someone leaves an area. BPL’s closing and opening procedures include deep cleaning of all areas.

BPL is pleased to offer our community a library that is relevant and follows best practices.

Please contact Denise Goff our Operations Manager at (918)338-4187 or email Denise at dcgoff@cityofbartlesville.org to let us know about any concerns you have.
