Interlibrary Loan
If you need materials that we do not own, we will request to borrow them from another library for you.

You can request materials in person at the library, by telephone at 580-223-8290, or by email to Interlibrary Loan. Some materials are difficult to borrow (genealogy, reference books, etc.) and the process of borrowing anything via ILL can take several weeks. Occasionally, other libraries charge fees and we will ask if you are willing to pay when we are notified by the lending library before we borrow on your behalf. Normally borrowed items can be checked out just like other materials but sometimes restrictions such as shortened loan time and "in library use only" are placed on them by lenders.

You can also check our Online Catalog and place a hold on any checked out item you wish to request.
