Yes, you can renew most titles up to 2 times, unless needed by another patron. Media items may not be renewed. A MOBIUS title may be renewed only if there are 7 or fewer days remaining in the current loan period. If you try to renew a title more than 7 days prior to the due date, you will receive a "Renewal Too Soon" message.

MOBIUS renewals may take some time to process depending on the owning library. After renewing, the title may have a "Renewal Pending" status for a short period of time.

Average time for an item to arrive from the time the hold was placed is generally 3-4 weeks. Some items may take longer, such as when there are other holds in queue.

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 askus@tulsalibrary.org.

Making Your Lists/My Shelves Public or Not
Our new catalog includes many social media aspects. You have the option of making your reading/viewing/listening lists in My Shelves (Completed, In Progress and For Later) public.

By default, items on your Completed, For Later or In Progress shelves are public. You decide how much or how little of your shelves you’d like to share with others.

To exclude a title from public view, click the Add Details link to the right of the title to display the pull-down menu, and then click the Keep private checkbox. Private items have a small lock icon next to them.

Items you add to For Later are public by default.
