This study attempts to investigate the efforts of the Oyo State Library Board in the use of ICTs among its users and staff. The study appraises the library services in the state to highlight the library services development to the populace of the state. The survey research method was adopted and questionnaire was used to collect data from 110 library users and 20 library staff within the headquarter library. The instrument contained three sections with thirty-five questions. The findings of the study reveal that despite the fact that the level of ICT literacy among the users and staff is relatively low, majority of the staff are versatile in the use of ICT available in the library. The relevance of ICT to the library services were recognised and the need for the library management to intensify the free use of its ICTs facility. The findings provide platform for the public library services to be geared toward the 21st century demands of high-tech and innovative information environments.
