Read On! Communication

One of the best compliments I have ever received as a librarian happened just a few weeks ago. The father of one of my daughter’s friends said, “When we were kids, if libraries had been like the Pryor Library, I probably would have hung out there more.” 

We work really hard here to make sure our library is welcoming to everyone and that we are serving everyone well. We know we’re not perfect, though. Sometimes we mess up, sometimes we have bad days, sometimes we completely forget to order book 4 of a popular series. 

The thing that I like most about the patrons we serve is that they’re not afraid to tell us when they want something new or different from our services. They’re not afraid to tell us what’s working and what isn’t. That input is invaluable to us! We cannot serve our community if the community doesn’t talk to us!

So, if we don’t have something you’re looking for or you need it in a different format, please let us know. We will try our hardest to make sure you get what you need. Sometimes, things that are out of our control prevent us from being able to (like if a book is out of print or not available from our vendor), but we will try to get it for you another way. 


Things in the Library World to watch for: 

Architect Jim Graber will present the drawings for the proposed Library additions at the City Council meeting on October 1, 2019 at 6 PM in City Hall. You can watch it online if you can’t make the meeting. We should also have copies at the Library for anyone who is interested. 

The OK Virtual Library (Overdrive and Libby) will start a “Lucky Day” collection so our patrons can, if it’s their lucky day, skip the holds list and read the most popular ebooks. 

The OK Virtual Library has also started subscribing to a limited number of digital magazines that you can check out.
