Here are some of the things you can do at the library...

Wireless Internet
The library is superpowered by Alberta Supernet. The speed is literally awesome. Use it on our public access computers or your own device and avoid a “high-speed” headache.

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. 

Borrow Books by Mail
Did you know we have a direct mail service? If you live remotely, are homebound, or have mobility issues you can request library materials be delivered to your mailbox by Canada Post. 

Talk to your local library to find out more about this free service! 

Photocopying / Printing
The library can satisfy your need for black and white copying/printing for $0.25 per page. Colour copies may also be available at an additional charge. Just ask us!  

Reading Suggestions and Research Help
Looking for your next enthralling read or video content on a theme? Library staff can match you to the perfect book, movie, documentary, or audiobook. 
We can also help you find information on any topic imaginable from family history research to raising chickens in your backyard.

Alternate Formats for Print Disabilities
Albertans unable to use conventional print materials due to a print disability (visual, physical or cognitive) have a number of options to access materials in alternate formats.  Our library can provide access to large print books, audio books on discs or in digital format (direct to device or computer), braille books, described video and equipment (i.e. DAISY readers).  We can also help you register for services through the National Network for Equitable Library Service (NNELS) or the Centre for Equitable Library Access (CELA).

Grant Connect 
This intuitive online database can help non-profits and charities find grants that are relevant to their goals and initiatives. Available for use in all Parkland Regional libraries. Access it in the eLibrary or by clicking here. Please note: you must be physically present in the library to use Grant Connect.

Outreach & Homebound Delivery
If you are unable to visit the library yourself, Outreach Services volunteers will deliver materials to your home or care facility. 

Exam Invigilation (Proctoring)
Ideal for distance learners or anyone who needs to write regular certification exams, the library provides a quiet space and exam supervisor.  Book a time with staff prior to your exam arrival to make sure we can accommodate you. There may be a small charge faxing, mailing, courier and printing.

Tools & Equipment
Parkland Regional libraries lend many non-book materials such as eReaders, pedometers, radon screening kits, power monitors, DAISY book readers, projectors and screens, seeds, and even tools. Ask staff about all the exciting things you can borrow from us!

Accelerated Reader Program

The accelerated reader program is adopted in most schools. Teachers can find books that align to their curriculum, while giving students control over the books they choose by providing quizzes and tracking. This can pair nicely with the library reading program. This website provides links to the items in our library system that are currently on the most popular lists in each age group.
