Alberta-wide Borrowing

ME Libraries

ME Libraries gives you access to free Alberta-wide public library borrowing! When you sign up online, you'll be able to visit libraries across the province and borrow materials--using your local library card! All materials are picked up at the owning library but you can return them to any ME library. ME Libraries only work with physical materials, so online resources and interlibrary loan services are not included. Who can sign up? Adults (18+) with a local library card in good standing and with an email address on the account. 

TAL: The Alberta Library

TAL Online is your one-stop shop for requesting interlibrary loans. These are materials that you can't find at your local library or within the Trac system. By searching on TAL Online you can view materials across the province and request to have them shipped to your library. 

With a TAL card, you can borrow materials from participating libraries, including academic, government, and special libraries! Loan periods and overdue fines may vary. Return the material to any participating library and it will be sent back to its owning library at no charge. Visit your local library to sign up for a TAL card. Click here for a list of participating members.
