Library moves toward digital world

I know that today we are surrounded with the “online” world.  Most of us have at least one digital device and many of us have several. We stay connected with family, we buy products, we bank, and we may even go to church trough some type of “online” connection.

Well, Muskogee Public Library is no different.  While we began moving toward the online world in the ’90s, we are now very committed to library service online. The library and the entire Eastern Oklahoma District Library System are very aware that many people can access a variety of information and materials through their digital devices. We know they want the convenience of doing so anytime, anywhere, therefore we are working to make library services available and convenient.

This past June when the library set the material budget for Fiscal Year 2015 we committed one half of our materials budget to online materials. We are not abandoning print, but we are strongly moving to provide more digital content. Muskogee residents are becoming increasingly able to access many of the same services online as they can by coming to the library. A library card from Muskogee Public Library now allows residents to request library material, read books, listen to audiobooks, download music, read magazines and newspapers, search for ancestors, get live job coaching, learn a foreign language, take a class in gardening, accounting, or aromatherapy (just to name a few) and access several other resources all through our web site.

All of these resources are free.

If you have not checked out what Muskogee Public Library has to offer in digital content, then I invite you to visit our website: and click “research” to see what we have.

Whether it is from a computer or other digital device, many of the library’s materials can be accessed wherever you are whenever you want all it takes is a free library card.

So check us out, get your card, and use the library online. If, however, you want personal help, books, DVDs, CDs, magazines, etc., then visit us at 801 W. Okmulgee Ave.

Either way your library has something for you.
