I'd Like To See What Was In The National News On The Day I Was Born. Where Can I Find Those Headlines?

We have access to a New York Times database that allows you to view the newspaper page by page on any given publication date from 1851-2013. This resource can be found by selecting the Alphabetical List of Resources in the library's Research and Learn tab. Under the N section of the list, you'll see two entries for the New York Times.

I'm Taking A Trip This Summer And Need To Learn How To Communicate With The Locals. Can The Library Help Me Learn A Foreign Language?

Yes, we have a database called Mango that is great for learning or practicing a foreign language. The lessons use a combination of audio and visual cues to give a more comprehensive guide to understanding words and phrases.

It's Tornado Season In Oklahoma. What Can I Do To Prepare In Case One Hits Our Area?

The library's Government Documents section has a weather page with several links to agencies with information on preparedness for tornadoes and other severe weather. To find these, click the Government Documents link in our Research & Learn tab, and look for the gray Weather tab.

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.

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.
