Reserving Items

Materials currently in circulation but unavailable at the time of request may be reserved.  This may be done in person at the library or online.  Library staff will notify patrons when the materials are available.

Borrowing from Other Libraries

If you are looking for a book that the library does not hold in its collection, you can request getting the items through the Oklahoma Department of Libraries. Request forms are available at the front desk. We will contact you to let you know when your items arrive. Be aware that if you order a book through interlibrary loan and do not claim it, you will be charged a $5 postage and handling fee.

You may request 1 interlibrary loan at no cost per 6 month period. Multiple requests during a 6 month period will be charged $5 per book to cover the cost of postage and handling.


Where to Return Library Items

  • Return audio-books, videos, and DVDs inside the library.
