Yes. Please let the librarian know if you need help using a computer to access the Internet, print documents, set up an email account, or any other basic task. For assistance with complicated tasks like using Microsoft Office, creating a resume, job searches and applications, or anything that requires more than half an hour, please contact the library in advance and schedule an appointment with the librarian.
Please keep in mind that we do not assist with online tasks that require us to handle sensitive information for you such as your bank account information or your Social Security number. We also do not assist with legal paperwork or filing taxes.
Do you have a place where I can study or meet one-on-one with a client/student?
Yes. You are welcome to use space in our library to study and meet with individual clients and students. One of the benefits of a library is that it is a free to use public space where you are not obligated to purchase anything or have a membership. You will not need to rent our meeting room or make a reservation for study sessions and one-on-one meetings, though at this time we encourage you to call ahead and let the library know when you intend to be there. Privacy is not guaranteed, but the library is usually quiet and we have tables, chairs, computers, and free WiFi.

Yes! Please visit the library in person an fill out an Interlibrary Loan Request Form. There is a $3.00 fee (cash only) for each ILL.

ILLs cannot be accepted via phone or email and you must have a valid library card in good standing with no unpaid fees.
Do you sell books or have a book sale?
Yes, Friends of the Tuttle Public Library have an ongoing book sale in the library. They are always adding new inventory, so please feel free to stop by and browse.

Yes. Click here to read about absentee voting in Oklahoma. If you need to make a copy of your ID for absentee voting, your copy will be free of charge. Our librarian is a notary public, and notary services are available next door at the Tuttle Tag Agency as well.
Do you have tax forms?
As a service to the community, we do our best to obtain paper tax forms for our patrons and we will print any requested tax form for free. You may print the instructions for $0.10/per page, but this is not recommended as it can get quite expensive. We recommend using our computer lab to read the instructions online.
