Library for State Employees
We're your library.
State Agency Employees and Legislators are eligible to obtain a library card from the Oklahoma Department of Libraries.
With the ODL library card, you will have access to our collection of books, audiobooks, videos and more.
The state employee library card works similar to a public library card. You are able to check out materials for a period of time.
You can borrow eBooks and online audiobooks 24/7 through the Libby App with your library card number. Also, ODL provides access to numerous online resources and use of interlibrary loan to access a world of information.
To apply for the state employee library card, go the ODL Library Card Online Application or apply in person at the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, 200 NE 18th Street, OKC.

Late or Overdue Materials
Materials may be checked out and/or returned at the Circulation Desk in the Allen Wright Memorial Library. Most library materials circulate for one month with renewals available. Reference books and other materials are subject to special loan policies. Library materials may be recalled.
The Library does not charge fines for overdue materials. If any library materials are lost, stolen or not returned the patron will be billed for the actual in-print cost plus $45.00 processing. If the material is out of print, the average cost to replace the item from an out of print source plus $45.00 is assessed.
Replacement by the patron of the actual lost item can be negotiated with the circulation manager.
