Renewing Items

Late fines can be avoided by returning or renewing items by their due date. You can renew books in person, by phone at (780) 837-2776, or online by logging in to your account at TRACpac

Most items may be renewed twice, unless other patrons have holds on the item. 

Placing Holds

Can't find what you're looking for on the shelves? You can place a hold in person, by phone, or online by logging in to your account at TRACpac

You may place several holds at a time. Items are held for 7 days; please call the library to extend the pick-up period.

Please suspend your holds if you will be away for an extended period of time or cancel holds that are no longer desired. You can do so in person, by phone, or online by logging in to your account at TRACpac

Lost or Stolen Card

For your protection, contact the library immediately to report a lost or stolen card so we can stop others from using it. You are responsible for anything borrowed until it is  reported. Replacement cards are $5.00.
