New Catalog

New and Improved

Visit our catalog on August 2nd to see the new and improved catalog system with streamlined search results. Now when you search for an item, you’ll see every available format at once.

Easy-to-use system displays all title search results in one place! Quickly find a book, e-book, audiobook, large print format and more!

Just click on the format of your choice to place a hold or to locate it in our stacks.

If there's a long wait list for a book you're dying to read, you can now easily see if another format is available. 

We're here to help you navigate the new catalog.  You can call us at (405) 231-8650 or email us for help.
