Metropolitan Library Resources

The Metropolitan Library is Oklahoma City's public library system.  Metro Library offers a wealth of resources, including books and electronic resources for student research.

To obtain a library card at Metro Library, students under 17 will need a parent's or guardian's signature.  Any student in the Oklahoma City area can get a library card, even if he or she does not live in the city, and the process is simple.  You will likely need a library card for your English classes, so please consider taking the time to sign up for one.  It's free!
