History: 

Because of the quick growth of the city of Broken Arrow Library to the south, it became obvious that a second branch library was needed by the early 1990s.

After a great deal of exploring, a site at 3600 S. Chestnut was deemed an ideal location. Working with the City of Broken Arrow and the homeowners in the neighborhood, the Tulsa City-County Library successfully obtained the property in 1993. Bates/LZW, Architects, designed the 6,100 sq. ft. building and it opened in 1994. Theresa Fowler was appointed librarian.

The community immediately swarmed the building and it quickly became one of the busiest branches in the system. In 2002, eight years after continual use, small renovations were made to the restrooms. New carpeting and new floor tile was added and the furniture was reupholstered. In 2005, to further accommodate the growth of the area, the library enlarged its children’s area, created a computer station for its computers and added additional space for media. 

Theresa Fowler was South Broken Arrow Library’s first branch manager. She held that position for nearly ten years and was succeeded by Christy Chilton, in 2003.  Kim Johnson served as the branch manager from 2004 to 2010.  Tracy Warren served as the branch manager from 2010 to 2012. The current branch manager is Emily Tichenor.
