Marian Rock was selected as the first Librarian of the Carnegie Library in Oklahoma City in 1901. She was a journalist previous to her appointment by the library board. Mrs. Rock was immensely popular in the city and the library grew substantially during her tenure. She was replaced by the library board in 1905 despite a petition signed by over 600 patrons requesting she be allowed to stay.
