The library is closed until further notice. No overdue fines will accumulate during this time. We will be closely monitoring developments related to COVID-19 and will provide updates as they become available. Updated information from the Alberta Government is available here.

Our online resources are available and may be accessed remotely using your library card here. Also check out our blog for ideas on how to keep your kids busy.

Staff can be reached via email and phone from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday to Friday.

Alberta Wide Borrowing (ME Libraries)
Library members can register with non-Parkland public libraries across the province to easily borrow physical items (not eContent) using their Parkland Regional Library card. Borrowed materials can be returned to any public library, too. All this for free!

Interlibrary Loans
Borrow print and audio books, movies, music CDs, game discs and even journal and newspaper articles from libraries across the province. Request online using your Parkland Regional Library card number and PIN or ask library staff to find / request items for you. We will look far and wide – beyond Alberta and even internationally – to track down specific items and contact you when your item arrives so you can pick it up.

Institutional Memberships

Institutional memberships are intended to provide staff members of local organizations with access to the Sylvan Lake Municipal Library’s resources and collections, in support of their work. An Institutional membership is $20.00 per year. Institutional Memberships are subject to the same membership conditions as an Individual membership cardholder. 

A designated representative must be chosen by the organization applying for the Institutional membership. This designated representative must be someone who is authorized to accept financial responsibility for the organization. Proof of address for the organization is required in order to set up the membership.
