Downtown Libraries. The cornerstone for Oklahoma City's Carnegie Library was laid at the northeast corner of NW 3rd and Robinson in 1900 and it opened in 1901. It served until it was destroyed to make way for the successor downtown libary at the same location in 1953 with a formal opening in 1954. After completion of the Ronald J. Norick Downtown Library and Learning Center on Park Avenue, the successor library was sold and is in the process of becoming a residential condominium. The postcard below is from my personal collection and the other image is from the Oklahoma County Assessor's website.
