About Capitol Hill Library

The Capitol Hill Library opened in November of 1951. It is a three level building (including a basement area).   A handicapped-accessible restroom is located on the 1st floor, with additional bathrooms downstairs in the basement. A meeting room is located on the 1st floor, and a smaller meeting room is available at basement level.  There are 9 off-street parking spaces located on the south side of the building and 2 additional handicapped parking spaces are on the west side of the building.

The Capitol Hill Library is located in the south central part of Oklahoma County. The library serves a diverse group of residents of various ages, races and ethnic groups. The Capitol Hill Library may be best described as a community library located in a challenged yet progressive area of Oklahoma City.  The library is used by Euro-Americans and one of the largest Hispanic populations of the city, as well as a good representation of American Indians and African Americans.  Young families continue to utilize the library for school, personal information needs, and overall self improvement, and there is an ongoing appreciation of the library as a viable resource needed for the ongoing community building process.
