Broken Arrow Library

300 West Broadway Avenue

The history of the Broken Arrow Public Library can be traced to a group of 17 young women, who in 1906 organized the Self Culture Club. This group stared out as a literary club and almost immediately became active in civic affairs. The club soon realized the need for a public library. The members organized a Tea, and interested individuals were asked to donate one or more books for the library’s collection. This resulted in over 150 volumes being donated. After the classifying of the books by the library committee, the library was opened to the public a few hours each week. Club members served as librarian a week at-a time.

Always good selection. Always helpful. Technology can be busy at times, but system in place to help this is fair.

I enjoy coming here with my kids very much. The staff is very friendly, the check out and check in for books is fast and efficient. Plus, I love the drop off for books too! Will keep coming here for sure.

The library has been here for so long and it has an amazing selection, with the traffic it is still a very peaceful place and perfect place to borrow any books to read or for college classes

A nice quiet place to find books, use the computer and printer or just read a magazine

Helpful staff but go while the kids are in school or you won't have a place to sit and read or an available computer.
