Frequently Asked Questions
MY CLASSES ARE IN MUSKOGEE. DO I HAVE TO DRIVE TO THE WARNER CAMPUS TO USE THE LIBRARY?
Connors has two library locations. The main library is on the Warner Campus but there is a branch library Muskogee West Campus. The same services afforded the Warner Campus students are available to the Muskogee West Campus students. Requests for materials that reside at the Warner Campus may take 48-72 hours to fill so you are encouraged to plan ahead.
Also, the Muskogee Public Library (MPL), is located at 801 West Okmulgee Avenue. Muskogee County residents and residents affiliated with communities making up the Eastern Oklahoma District Library System can use and check-out MPL’s resources with an EODLS-issued library card. Students from non-affiliated counties such as communities in Wagoner and Okmulgee counties may use MPL resources in the building but will have to pay an out-of-district annual fee to check out materials.
