Getting a Library Card

A library card allows you to do more than simply borrow books and other materials from your local library.

Your card allows you to:
  • Request any of the almost 4 million items from other TRAC libraries (The Regional Automation Consortium) for interlibrary lending.
  • Request books from academic libraries using Alberta Relais for interlibrary lending. Note: some restrictions apply.
  • Access and download Audio and E-Books,  on-line E-resources & Reference Database services.
  • Manage your library account on-line including request and renewal of items, review of your reading activity, etc.

To get a library card, you will need a piece of identification with a current address and be a resident of the town or county of Westlock. Residents outside the county of Westlock may get a library card with the approval of the Library’s Director or Assistant Director.

All children under the age of 16 are required to have a parent/legal guardian accept responsibility for their borrowing privileges by signing their registration card.   The signing parent/guardian must be in good standing.  While library staff may suggest age-appropriate materials and activities, it remains the parent’s/guardian’s responsibility to select materials suitable for their children.

The library assumes no responsibility for limiting or restricting access to materials for individual card holders.  Library card holders-including children-have access to all library materials.

Card holders may not lend their cards to others for borrowing privilege.

Borrowing privileges or use of services may be suspended for fines over $10.00 or failure to abide by the library's Code of Conduct.
