Welcome to the Iowa Tribal Library!


Our library belongs to our people. We strive to offer meaningful resources, materials, and help for literacy, education, employment, and wellness for the Iowa Tribe and its community. We are dedicated to providing materials, access, and resources for the literacy of our tribal community. Many of our resources are now available online. Please feel free to contact our Library Staff for any questions, or help accessing our Library resources and services.

Book and Media Requests: Our library is happy to take your specific book and media requests, available through our Interlibrary Loan through the Oklahoma Department of Libraries. Please note that all requests will typically arrive within a week’s time. We are also happy to work with fulfilling any homebound elder’s audio and large-print book requests for delivery.

Circulation and Sign-Up: Our library checks out materials to our community for a period of 2 weeks. Library users do not need a physical library card to sign-up and utilize our services.  Individuals will be signed up through our electronic circulation system during time of check-out. Our tribal library does not charge for late fees but we ask that materials are returned in a timely manner for the ability to maintain our collection and access to all.
