Branch History: 

The Oak Bend Branch opened on September 28, 1986. The branch underwent extensive renovations in 2016 as part of the Your Library Renewed campaign. The renovations made the branch’s interior significantly brighter, and very colorful. Other improvements include the addition of a quiet reading room and new furnishings throughout.
