Fines

To avoid fines on Overdue or Missing Books or Videos, check your account regularly to make sure you're returning items on time. You can contact the Drumheller Public Library directly at 403-823-1371*, or access your account online. If you require extra time with the material you've checked out you can also usually renew online or with a simple phone call*. The best fines are no fines!

Overdue Materials

  • $0.10 per day for Books, Audiobooks, and Magazines
  • $1.00 per day for DVDs and Blu-rays
  • For items borrowed through TRAC from another library, overdue fines will be charged at the lending Library's rate
  • Borrowing privileges will be suspended if fines or other penalties are greater than $5.00
  • There are fees for loss, damage, and items returned late.
  • Any account with total accumulated fines and fees over $50 will be sent to our collection agency if the amount owing remains unpaid 60 days past the date of billing notice, despite reasonable efforts from our staff to obtain payment. A $20 Collection Fee is added to an upaid account sent to the collection agency**.


You can check your fines online at TRACpac or contact the Library @ (403) 823-1371*.

*All telephone or in-person inquiries regarding the specifics of a library account (for example, to find out when items are due or to request a renewal) will require your library card, or library card number. Please have your card ready!

**The collection agency will be provided with the name, contact information, and amount owing associated with the account. The information gathered by the collection agency will in turn be provided to the library.
