Borrowing Fees & Information


Thorhild County has funded FREE library cards for ALL residents of Thorhild County!

Our county libraries join over 90 public libraries in Alberta that are not charging for library cards    


Library cards may only be used by the person to whom it is issued. Please notify the library immediately of any change of address or telephone number, or if a card is lost.

Proper care of the library item entrusted to your care is expected. Should any item be damaged, defaced, or lost you shall be expected to pay the replacement (list) cost of the item to the library.

No more than five items may be on loan to one person at any given time.

Books, DVD's magazines, etc are lent for a period of 21 days.  Though we no longer charge fines, we encourage a donation to the "Jar of Shame" should your conscience be assailed.

Reference services or requests for Interlibrary Loans ideally should be addressed to this library as it is your home library.

If $10.00 is owing by a patron or a member of any family unit (all members of one household) ALL members of that family  will be refused service.

Children under the age of 12 years must have their application form signed by his or her parent or guardian.

The membership card remains the property of the Thorhild Library and may be revoked at any time if any of the above conditions are violated.


"Come and take choice of all my library and beguile thy sorrow" William Shakespeare
