The Library will issue an invoice for the replacement cost of any item that is overdue by 52 days. If you return the item, the fee is reduced to the maximum overdue fee for that item. The Library suspends borrowing privileges when fees owed equal or exceed $10. A collection agency may be used to collect debts of $50 or more.

Renew items at the self-check machines or any computer in the Library or from home through My Account. Please make sure you renew before midnight on the day your items are due to avoid overdue fees.

  • Renew by phone by calling 780-459-2979 - you will need your Library barcode and PIN
  • Renew at the Customer Service Desk on the main floor
  • Use the SAPL mobile app
  • Use the 24-hour bookdrop at the back door of the Library, off the Court House parking lot

There is a maximum of two renewals per item, except for:

  • Items on hold, Bestseller Express, Quick Flicks or interlibrary loans - no renewal
  • Storytime, HEAT, Sphero and BEAR Kits - one renewal
  • You can place holds on circulating items except Quick Flicks and Bestseller Express items. Go to My Account
  • We will call or email you when your items are ready for pick up
