How Do I Find a Book using the Catalogue?

Chestermere Public Library materials can be accessed online through TRACpac, the online catalogue for Alberta's regional library systems. With your library card you can place holds on material or renew them from home or at the Library.

To search our catalogue (which contains the holdings of all 160+ TRAC Member Libraries) please visit: www.tracpac.ab.ca

You can search for library materials by title, author or subject.

If you would like a quick tutorial on using the online catalogue, please ask one of our friendly staff!

If the Chestermere Public Library does not own a copy of the item or it is checked out, click on the Place Request button. At this screen you will be asked to enter your library barcode and pin number if you are not already logged in. Enter the barcode number from your library card and your pin number (usually the last 4 digits of your telephone number).

Click Login and the system will confirm your request.

Click Submit Request.

When your hold arrives at the Chestermere Public Library, you will becontacted by phone, email or text (contact the library to change your notification option). You then have one week to pick up the hold. If at that time you do not want the title, please call us at 403-272-9025 so we can send the item on to another customer or back to its home location.
