Library Membership


Memberships are always free and offers many benefits!

You can renew any borrowed material, in person or by phone, as long as the item isn't overdue and no one else has placed a reserve on the item.

Using TRAC (The Regional Automation Consortium) you are able to order books from other public library in Alberta and return them right here in Elk Point.

If you’re a member of another library that belongs to TRAC (The Regional Automation Consortium) or you have signed up for the ME Libraries, you are welcome to use these cards to borrow materials at our library.

At times libraries outside of Alberta charge fees for sending interlibrary loans (ILL's). This cost must be paid by the patron when the item is picked up at our library.


  • Books 21 days
  • Magazines 7 days
  • DVDs 7 days

Each member is responsible for all materials charged out on his/her membership card. A “date due” slip is given out at the time of library loans. It is the member’s responsibility to ensure that items are returned on time and in good order. Patrons who have overdue items will have their membership privileges suspended until the item(s) are returned or a replacement cost is paid.
