About OYSLB

Delivering societal Goals.

Oyo State Library Board came into existence as a result of organization transformation that has taken place over the years. Prior to its present status, the library was known as Western Nigeria Regional Library and was established in 1955 to support the free primary education of the Western Nigeria Regional Government led by late Chief Obafemi Awolowo. In 1976, when Oyo State was carved out of the Western Region of Nigeria, the library nomenclature changed to Oyo State Library under the Ministry of Education while the Head of the Library was renamed the Chief Librarian. The revised edition of the law establishing the Library was published on 31st March, 2000 renamed the Head of the Library as the State Librarian who must be a qualified Librarian.
