Mission & 2016 Fiscal Highlights

The Ponca City Library is a unique community facility which exists to meet the
informational needs of the Community. We will serve our community as a guide
to the world of information and as a source of leisure materials. Residents will
have the resources they need to make informed decisions, explore topics of
interest and be able to successfully learn throughout their lives.
