OUR MISSION: We empower people by creating opportunities that enrich their lives with information, activities, and services.
OUR VISION: A welcoming library that inspires imagination and ideas.
The Eastern Oklahoma Library System is a multi-county organization providing public library service through fifteen libraries in six counties.
The roots of this service date back to the early 1900s as regional community groups came together to organize book collections and reading groups. These early efforts grew into local libraries, most of which struggled to serve their communities with limited funds.
The Oklahoma Library Systems Act of 1967 allowed libraries to work together to improve library services and resources by establishing library systems. Starting in Muskogee County, the Eastern Oklahoma Library System radiated out to include Adair, Cherokee, Delaware, McIntosh and Sequoyah counties.
The Eastern Oklahoma Library System continues to grow and adapt to meet the changing information needs of the communities that it serves.
The Board of Trustees are scheduled to meet at 1:00 p.m. on the following dates in 2023:
All meetings will be held at EOLS Support Services, 14 East Shawnee, Muskogee and through Zoom. Please contact Support Services if you would like a Zoom link.
