Oak Hill was promised a library when it was annexed in 1984, but voters didn't approve the bonds until 1992, and construction didn't begin until last year. This delay didn't just frustrate Oak Hill - it became a symbol for every suburban neighborhood that fought City annexation, claiming they'd be similarly ignored when it came time to provide City services. As of last April, though, they have one less thing to complain about - the Oak Hill library is finally here, and by most reports worth the wait.
