New Borrowers may have no more than two (2) items checked out at any given time for the first two (2) months. Thereafter, the limit is 25 items out at one time. There is a limit of 4 DVDs (per household) and 5 magazines.

We will attempt to locate the item for you using the Oklahoma Department of Library’s Inter-Library Loan search services.

Searches typically take two to six weeks and may be unsuccessful, although this is rare. Availability depends on the request item and the lending policies of participating libraries.
