According to a news release, the Starbucks will be located on the ground floor at the southeast corner of the building, near South Denver Avenue and East Fifth Street. The 1,483 square-foot store will have its own entrance and will include indoor seating as well as a patio.

“We look forward to partnering with Starbucks, which has strong brand recognition, a large customer-base, successful operational record, and an extensive training process,” said Tulsa City-County Library Chief Executive Officer Gary Shaffer. 

The Starbucks' hours aren't final yet, but will be probably be consistent with other Starbucks locations in the area, the release says. The coffee shop will be able to operate even when the library is closed.

The shop is expected to employee 18 people who will work for Starbucks and not the library system.
