ODL Board

Meeting Dates for 2024:

  • March 8 - Oklahoma Library Association Annual Conference at the Hyatt Regency Downtown, 100 East 2 Street, Tulsa
  • June 14 - Norman Central Library, Redbud Room, 103 West Acres Street, Norman
  • September 13 - Sapulpa Public Library, 27 West Dewey Avenue, Sapulpa
  • December 13 - ODL Building, 200 NE 18th Street, Oklahoma City

The Department is governed by a seven-member board of directors appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the State Senate.

There is one board member for each of Oklahoma's five U.S. House districts, and two members are appointed "at large." (Because of confirmation timing, members appointed by the Governor often attend meetings as guests prior to their Senate confirmation.)

The ODL director serves as secretary and as an ex officio member of the board.
