Nursing Homes, Retirement Villages, and Assisted Living Centers

Outreach Services offers a full range of library services for residents of these sites.  Each month, the staff brings the bookmobile, makes door-to-door visits to deliver library materials, and mails out library materials to residents.  Residents can submit requests for materials and/or staff will select items according to the individual resident's reading, listening and/or viewing interests.

We have access to the extensive collection of regular-print and large-print books, audiobooks, movies and music CDs contained within the Tulsa City-County Library System.

If you would like to join this service, find out if and when we visit your facility, or make requests, call us at 918.549.7480 or fill out the online form.

If you are already on the service, you may make requests online.
