Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get a library card?

An application must be filled out for the library card. You must also live, work, attend a higher educational
institution or own property in one of the five (5) counties that the Southern Oklahoma Library System (SOLS) serves:
Atoka, Carter, Johnston, Love and Murray counties. Verification of your current address (i.e., driver’s license,
utility bill, rent receipt, vehicle registration, etc.) must be presented in person at the time of registration.

Non-residents are able to purchase an annual membership for $25.00/year.

Thereafter, the limit is 25 items out at one time. There is a limit of 4 DVDs (per household) and 5 magazines.

What if you don’t have the book or magazine article I need?

We will attempt to locate the item for you using the Oklahoma Department of Library’s Inter-Library Loan search
services. Searches typically take two to six weeks and may be unsuccessful, although this is rare. Availability
depends on the request item and the lending policies of participating libraries.
