The media center has free Wi-Fi, public computers, children’s computers, public printers, and free meeting rooms for the community.

Okfuskee County residents can use the new telehealth kiosk located in the media center to meet virtually with out-of-town doctors. The ADA-compliant kiosk features high-speed internet with a computer and video-conferencing equipment. It also has diagnostic equipment such as blood pressure machines, heart-rate monitors, pulse oximeters, thermometers, scales, and a high-tech stethoscope for maternity patients. There are HEPA filters and specialized lighting for sterilization. The kiosk also has white noise machines, blurred glass, and locks for privacy.
