Interlibrary Loan

ILL Requests

If the library does not have what you are looking for in our collection, we will try to borrow from another library.

How to Make a Request

  • In person at the library
  • By telephone at (580) 254-8544
  • By email to library@woodward.lib.ok.us
  • Print and Submit an ILL Application Form

Before making an interlibrary loan request, please check our Online Catalog to be sure we do not already own the item. We cannot ILL something that is simply checked out, but you can place a hold electronically with your library card barcode.

Inter Library Loan Guidelines

  • All customers with a valid library card may borrow materials from other libraries through the interlibrary loan service.
  • A customer may have no more than five (5) interlibrary requests active at one time.
  • There is no charge for placing a request; however, the library does charge a return postage fee. Typical postage fees are between $3.00 and $4.00 per item.
  • Items not picked up within 10 days of notification will be assessed a $5 fee. This also applies to customers who cancel a submitted request.
  • The loan period and renewal options are set by the lending institution.

Overdues and Fees

Customers are responsible for any additional charges incurred with the request, such as overdue materials, processing fees, rental fees, photocopy charges, replacement costs, and fees associated with lost or damaged items.

WPL overdue fines for ILL material is $.25 per day, per item.

Storytime in the Park

 

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten!

The Woodward Public Library is excited to announce a new program to encourage early children’s literacy!

This program is for children ages Birth-5 and the goal of the program is to read to your child every day and reach 1,000 books before he/she enters kindergarten!

It’s as easy as reading 1 book a day to reach the goal in 3 years, or reading 3 books a day to reach your goal in 1 year. Whatever your speed, our hope is that you and your child will foster a new love of literature and have fun in doing so!

Ready to get started?

Register at the library beginning September 8th (Tuesday) and receive a book bag containing program information, a reading log, a literacy calendar, a bookmark, a sticker, a coloring sheet, and a book to get you and your child started.

Every time your child completes 100 books, they can come in for a milestone sticker and a new log! A picture will be taken and posted on our Facebook page at each 100, 500, 800, and 1,000 Milestone! Once your child has reached 1,000 books, their picture will be placed on the library Wall of Fame and they will receive a special prize!
