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.

Did You Make A New Year's Resolution To Learn A New Skill Or Try Out Some Different Hobbies? Then Take A Look At Our Universal Class Database!
