Register Online for a Library Card

Step 1. Fill out the online application

This form is only for new applicants and offers a temporary library card number for instant access to online library services while your information is verified. With this temporary card, you will be able to place up to 10 holds and access library Deep Web content. Once you receive your library card in the mail (see Step 4), you will be able to check out materials and use library computers.

By submitting this application, you understand and agree to abide by the Library Card Policies.

Step 2. Visit http://opac.tulsalibrary.org/patroninfo to choose a password

Upon submitting the online application, you will receive an email containing your temporary library card number and instructions for creating a password.

Step 3. Continue to the library’s interactive catalog, powered by BiblioCommons, and create your username

At the catalog, you can:

  • Track your borrowing.
  • Rate and review titles you borrow, and share your opinions on them.
  • Get personalized recommendations.
  • And more!

Step 4. Receive your library card in the mail.

Once your information is verified, we will mail your library card to the address you provided in your application. If you do not meet the criteria for a library card, we will notify you by email and  inactivate your temporary library card number.

Step 5. Sign up for Library Elf to track your checkouts and holds

This service is a free and easy way to keep track of what’s due, overdue or ready for pickup, plus check multiple library cards. Sign up to receive text, email and/or RSS alerts.
