We will coordinate library service planning with investments in City facilities and neighborhood planning. Oklahoma City should partner with the Metropolitan Library System and the State Department of Libraries to coordinate facility expansions, improvements, and new facility locations with other types of civic investments, such as schools, fire stations, and parks. This could allow for efficiencies through facility sharing or co-location.

New and remodeled libraries should support neighborhood planning goals by integrating themselves into their surroundings. The City should adopt design standards for both new and remodeled libraries that focus on integrating the building and site into the surrounding neighborhoods, thus increasing access to the libraries by walking, biking, and transit.
