The Peggy Helmerich Library will be closed temporarily for light renovation. We anticipate the closure to last several weeks. During the closure, any items you have placed on hold will be sent to Hardesty Library.
You will not be able to place holds or check out titles from the MOBIUS catalog if:
Replacement costs for any MOBIUS title is $120.00.
Tulsa Wiki is hosted by the Tulsa City-County Library. It will eventually contain everything about Tulsa, Tulsa County, and items related to Green Country that impact Tulsa County. (e.g. Port of Catoosa, Hard Rock Casino, etc.).

Educational institution cards may be issued to teachers and child-care leaders from eligible institutions. These include elementary, middle and high schools as well as day-care centers located in Tulsa County or within the city limits of Tulsa, Bixby, Broken Arrow, Collinsville, Glenpool, Jenks, Owasso, Sand Springs, Sperry and Skiatook.
The card is issued in the name of the institution to allow for classroom use of library materials. The teacher or child care leader is responsible for the material borrowed on the card. Multiple cards may be issued to a single institution with proper authorization.
This card is for classroom purposes only, not for personal use. Teachers and child-care leaders must present verification of employment, valid photo identification, and proof of current mailing address to obtain the card. Educational institution cards expire August 1 each year and may be renewed with updated verification of employment.
Print materials and CDs are checked out for 42 days but may not be renewed. Videos, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs check out for 14 days and may be renewed 100 times for a checkout period totaling up to one year. Fines are charged at the same rate as regular cards. Librarians may impose item limits for high demand subject areas.
For questions regarding educational institution cards, please contact the AskUs Hotline at 918-549-READ (7323) or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
