A Word from Our President


Suzanne M. Symcox, President


Thank you for your interest in learning more about supporting the libraries of Oklahoma County. The Library Endowment Trust is comprised of business and civic leaders who volunteer their time and resources to invest donated funds to build financial resources for library support. As trustees, we value our charge from the Metropolitan Library Commission to partner with our libraries to grow ‘smarter communities one person at a time’. 

It is an honor to steward community gifts so that together we can build the funds that our 19 library branches utilize for programs, renovation, expansion and modernization. It is our commitment to value and steward each gift and every donor.

The Library is a central part of our community and serves a diverse population.  I am passionate about the success of our library system because so many are served through library programs and electronic services.  Did you know the library has computers available?  Did you know the library has iPads?  These are just a few critical services provided by our local library system.

I invite you to join us in supporting the Metropolitan Library System by making a gift, attending an event or volunteering your time and look forward to sharing our success in developing a renowned library system.  We are making a difference in our community.
