Alberta Wide Borrowing

Important Notice!

Due to the closure of libraries in the province, Interlibrary Loan services have been suspended in Alberta for the foreseeable future.

Did you know that your library card gives you access to materials not only at your home library, but all public libraries in Alberta? 

You can return borrowed materials to any participating library and it will be sent back to its home library at no charge.

Alberta Library Portal

Search for and request physical items (books, dvds, etc.) from any public library in Alberta and have them sent to your local library. Your library account must be in good standing to place requests.
