Tribal Library

The Chickasaw Tribal Library is a community-based, family library that offers different programs for people of all ages. It contains a circulating collection of books that includes fiction, periodicals, children’s books, biographies, histories, magazines and general reference. The library also offers DVDs and audiobooks that cover topics ranging from documentaries to current popular titles. The tribal library offers a summer reading program during early June – August.

For research, the library has both a genealogist and a cultural research specialist on staff for those wishing to research the Dawes Rolls or general Chickasaw history and culture. Research requests are open to both internal and external entities.

There is a drop-box located outside the library for patrons to return materials outside working hours. Late charges will accrue at 10 cents per day, up to a maximum amount equal to the cost of the book.

Movies/DVDs: Two DVDs at a time are allowed per household and due back within one week. Late charges will accrue at 10 cents per, day up to a maximum amount equal to the cost of the movie. The drop-box is available for movie returns as well.
