All borrowers must be registered and have a valid checkout number.

Loan Periods

  • 2 weeks for books, recorded books, videos and DVDs.
  • Generally, reference books do not circulate. Upon request, some reference materials may be checked out.
  • Local history and genealogy books and materials are for in-house use only.
    Books may be renewed in person, by phone, or through the website if there is not a reserve on the title.
  • The director may establish the loan period for special collections, materials which are temporarily in great demand. There is a limit of 3(three) items a patron can borrow at one time.


Reserves may be placed by patrons either in person, over the phone, or through the website.

Fines and Charges

There will be a fine of $.10 per day charged for overdue materials. A first notice is sent after the material is due.  Patrons who have been sent an overdue notice or who have outstanding fines shall be denied borrowing privileges until those overdue materials are returned or paid for if lost and/or damaged and the fines have been paid.

Inter Library Loan

Because of limited budget and space, the Okeene Public Library cannot provide all materials that are requested. If a book is not available the Okeene Public Library will ‘interlibrary loan’ (request the materials from another library). Any cost for this service will be incurred by the requesting patron.
