Borrow Materials

How long can I borrow materials for?

All materials borrowed from the High River Library are loaned for 21 days. Items borrowed from partner libraries may have different loan periods.

Can I renew items that I have borrowed?

Yes, most items can be renewed twice. Each renewal extends the due date by the same length of time as you originally borrowed it for, e.g. an additional 21 days for most books.

Renewals are restricted if a hold exists for another patron, if your fines are above $20.00, if your membership has expired, and for interlibrary loans if the owning library does not wish to extend the loan. The Bob Snodgrass Recreation Complex family pass is non-renewable.

How do I renew my items?

You can renew your items by:

  • Signing into your library account online using your library bar code (no spaces) and PIN
  • Calling the library at 403-652-2917
  • Stopping by the library and requesting a renewal at the circulation desk

Where do I return my items?

There is a drop box for returns at the circulation desk and outside the front entrance to the High River Library. Most materials can be returned to any Alberta library.
