Borrowing Basics

How do I access My Account?

You can click on the "TRACpac Login" link in the header of our website. You can manage your holds, see your due dates, and request items.

When are my items due?

Most items are due back 21 days after you borrowed them. Exceptions include our Most Wanted Collection, Vinyl Record Collection, Magazines, and our Library of Things collection.

To find a full list, please see our loan periods below. 

Please note: if you bring in items from other libraries in TRAC, they may have different loan periods than we do. Watch your due dates

Can I renew my items?

Most items will automatically renew twice. We can’t renew items that have requests on them, so those will need to be returned by the most recent due date.

How can I check when my items are due?

You can check the status of your items under My Account on our online catalogue (TRACpac). You can also download the “TRACpac” app from your app store. 

Can I request items?

Sure! You can request items from our online catalogue yourself. Simply search for the title, click the ‘Place a Request’ button, and complete the request.

You can also request items using the app.

Items not available through the TRAC catalogue? Try borrowing from other libraries.

How much does the library charge for late fees / fines?

Great news! Late fees were removed at the beginning of 2021. Replacement fees will still be charged for items that are unreturned, lost, or damaged.

Can you explain what TRAC means?

TRAC is an acronym for The Regional Automation Consortium. It’s a partnership between libraries within Marigold Library System, Northern Lights Library System, Peace Library System, Yellowhead Regional Library. It means we have access to any title owned by any library in this area:
