About the Library

The Wilburton Public Library opened its doors in May 1966, in a rock structure located at 208 N. Central. At the time, the library was operated by volunteers.

In 1968, the Wilburton Public Library became one of many branches with the Choctaw Nation Multi-County System.

September of 1995 was a new beginning for the Wilburton Public Library as they were able to move into a larger (10,000 square feet), new building. With the move came a new name which is now: Latimer County Public Library. The library serves the 10,000 plus population of Latimer County.

The library has 2 meeting rooms, the Historical Society and the Wilburton Alumni having rooms of their own. It is located one block north of City Hall and one-half block south of the Wilburton Elementary School at 301 W. Ada.

The library is also known for its dinosaur sculptures constructed from scrap vehicles. These sculptures were made by Steve Carson and are on loan for display.

In August, 2019, Latimer County Public Library was pleased to announce a “friends” group had been formed. The Friends of the Latimer County Public Library was able to obtain a “seed” grant from FOLIO (Friends of the Library in Oklahoma) to assist them in acquiring their 501c (3) status.
