Here are some of the things you can do at the library...
Alberta-Wide BorrowingLibrary members can register with non-Parkland public libraries across the province to easily borrow physical items (not eContent) using their Parkland Regional Library card. Borrowed materials can be returned to any public library, too. All this for free! Check it here.

Alternate Formats for Print DisabilitiesAlbertans unable to use conventional print materials due to a print disability (visual, physical or cognitive) have a number of options to access materials in alternate formats. Our library can provide access to large print books, audio books on discs or in digital format (direct to device or computer), braille books, described video and equipment (i.e. DAISY readers). We can also help you register for services through the National Network for Equitable Library Service (NNELS) or the Centre for Equitable Library Access (CELA).
Wireless InternetThe library is SUPERPOWERED by Alberta Supernet. The speed is literally awesome. Use it on our public access computers or your own device and avoid a “high-speed” headache.
Equipment LendingThe Library lends many non-book materials such as eReaders, pedometers, radon screening kits, power monitors, and DAISY book readers.
