We use the TRAC library card which can be used at any TRAC library (most rural libraries). To access the metropolitan libraries such as Edmonton Public Library, Fort Saskatchewan, Strathcona and St. Albert, you can link your TRAC card at www.melibraries.ca. Our staff would be happy to walk you through the process. Please note that MeLibraries allows access to physical collections only (no electronic resources due to licensing agreements).

We sure do! Our programs change with the season and are always evolving to meet the needs of our community. Check out our website for the latest programs or follow us on social media for the latest updates!

When they have time the staff is happy to help with basic computer skills. We are always willing to help connect you to local resources for more in depth tutoring.
