About Us

Oberlin City Library opened in 1907 and was located in the old Opera House. In 1956, the library opened at the present site. In 1967, Oberlin City Library became a member of Northwest Kansas Library System. A renovation was completed in 1979, tripling the size of the library. In 2014, a renovation was made to the interior, with a new front desk, computer station, carpeting, and an upstairs handicapped-access bathroom. In 2018, the large basement room was renovated to include a Meeting room/ Classroom space and a Youth Center with new flooring, computers, computer desks, and xbox tvs. We look forward to continued improvements for our library.
