BPL is Opening, 5/18 – 5/31, for Curbside Pickup!
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
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!

Register now for the Summer Reading Program!
BPL is going virtual this summer! Thanks to funding from the Bartlesville Friends of the Library, we are using a fun and efficient app called Beanstack! Beanstack will not only allow patrons to register for the Summer Reading Program from the comfort of home, but it will also allow you to independently log your weekly reading, complete activity challenges, unlock virtual badges, earn virtual tickets for REAL prizes, and check the schedule of events.
The Summer Reading Program is for all ages, as BPL will offer challenges and prize drawings for pre-readers, children, teens and adults. Participants just need to download the free Beanstack Tracker app onto a device or go to https://bartlesville.beanstack.org/ on a PC and follow the prompts to register, after which you will be able to access the appropriate programs, challenges and schedule of events. Contact library staff at 918-338-4170 for assistance. For those who may not have access from home, there will be a dedicated computer or tablet at the library for participants to use.
We also have a really great line-up of events planned for children and teens. However, these events are tentative as we continue to assess the Covid19 situation. Any adjustments, cancellations, or changes of format will be publicized on BPL’s website and social media platforms.
