A TAL Card can then be requested, free of charge, from any branch of the Calgary Public Library. A parent/guardian signature will be required on the TAL application for those under 18 years old.
  • Users of a TAL card must show photo ID when signing out materials from other libraries. There is a five item limit on TAL loans.
  • Items borrowed can be returned to any member library. For example: If an item is borrowed from the University of Calgary, it can be returned to any Calgary Public Library and the Calgary Public Library will ship it to the U of C.

SWC students are encouraged to use these Post Secondary Libraries for their curricular and extracurricular learning!
