Membership and Borrowing

Getting a Library Card

Just drop by the library any time to register for your FREE library card. Bring valid ID with proof of your current address, such as a driver's license, utility statement, or rental agreement. Signature of a parent or guardian is required for membership of a child.

Yearly Membership Fees

There is no fee for membership at Elmworth Community Library. All memberships are updated annually and any outstanding charges must be paid at that time, in order for renewal to occur.

Fines for overdue items vary depending on the item type. Damaged items and lost items are billed at their replacement cost. All fines are payable immediately, and borrowing privileges may be suspended until payment is received.

Renewing Items

Late fines can be avoided by returning or renewing items by their due date. You can renew books in person at the library, by phoning 780-354-2930, 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 up to 25 holds at a time, and schedule or stagger them as you see fit. Items are held for 7 days once they arrive at your library for pick-up. Contact your library directly to request an extension of 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.
