The Peggy Helmerich Library will be closed temporarily for light renovation. We anticipate the closure to last several weeks. During the closure, any items you have placed on hold will be sent to Hardesty Library.
The purpose of the African-American Resource Center is to collect, preserve and provide access to resources honoring and documenting the experiences of people of African descent.
The Center is devoted to providing the community with current and comprehensive resource materials and professional reference materials on the culture and history of African-Americans.
As the only center of its kind in Oklahoma, our services have attracted visitors throughout the nation. Individual and group tours of the center's collection and special features are available by appointment. To arrange a tour, call the coordinator at 918.549.7645.
