Hotspots Now Available at the Library!

Okemah Public Library is one of four libraries in Oklahoma participating in a pilot program sponsored by Oklahoma State University Extension.  We have mobile Hotspots for checkout to our adult patrons (some requirements must be met).  The Hotspots work anywhere where a Sprint signal is available (home, around town, on the road) and can connect up to 10 devices at once (phones, tablets, laptops).  The  Hotspots connect to 4G LTE (high speed) service, unlimited data.  They can be checked out for a one-week period.

Never Too Young To Love The Library!

Our children’s area has puzzles and board books suitable for toddlers with little rocking chairs to sit and read or for Mommy or Daddy to read to them.  Even little ones have fun at the library!
