Want To Plant A Vegetable Garden? The Library Now Has A Seed Library To Help You Get Started!

With the TCCL Seed Library, you can borrow seeds from a large variety of vegetables (and a few fruits and flowers as well) to take home and plant in your garden. Since, hopefully, the seeds will become plants, we don't expect you to bring those exact same seeds back. However, once the plant produces, you simply take a small portion of the vegetables, fruits, or flower, harvest the seeds and dry them, then return those to the library for other people to use.

My Mother Loves To Read But Is Not Able To Drive. Do You Deliver Books To People Who Aren't Able To Get To The Library?

Yes, the library does offer a homebound delivery service and Books By Mail to those customers who are physically unable to travel to their library branch. This option is offered through our Outreach Services department. Customers who qualify for homebound delivery can request their own items, or have Outreach staff select materials based on their reading preferences.

It’s Time To File My Taxes. Can The Library Help Me?

While the library does not offer a tax preparation service or tax advice, we do have some tools that can help you with the process of filing your taxes. A list of these resources can be found on our Tax Information page.

Where can I learn about transportation options in Tulsa?

If you are new to town or just want to know what your options are for traveling around the Tulsa area, check out our Getting Around In Tulsa research guide. Here you can find information on the layout of the city to help you find a route from Point A to Point B.

Is There A Way That I Can Keep Track Of All Of My Family’s Library Cards At Once?

Yes there is, and it’s called Library Elf. This service can be set up to send you notices regarding the due dates of your checked out items, as well as if you have any holds ready for pick. You can use Library Elf for a single library account, but you can also add multiple cards (those of your spouse and your kids, for example) to the same Elf account to keep track of everyone’s items in a single place.
