Okemah Public Library
“[I]n 1937 a new library was constructed under the Workers [sic] Progress Administration. An addition was added to the library in the 1960’s.
Okemah Public Library is still located in this historic rock building. The library is located by scenic Noble Park with the WPA canal and is one block from Okemah’s middle school. Unique to our library are the two original stone fireplaces that lend a quaint charm to the library’s interior.” (http://www.okemah.okpls.org/)
Note: the Oklahoma Landmarks Inventory form lists the date of construction as 1935.
