Robert L. Kraus

Robert has been a long-standing advocate for library access and services since his childhood in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he was a frequent patron of the Oklahoma Public Library, now known at the Zablocki Library.

Robert’s passion for books has taken him into a behind-the-scenes role within the book publishing industry, working on reprint management and first-run production of children’s books, adult training materials, and higher education titles over the course of his 20+-year career.

Seeing the library continue to engage the community and evolve as reading and reading resources change is a primary interest in his role on the board.
