Changes to Inter Library Loan Services

The Lethbridge Public Library has teamed up with the Public Library Service Board to offer its members a powerful search tool - Relais D2D!

Relais D2D makes it easier for people to search for items not found within their own library region. This search tool contains books, DVDs, CDs, and more from all Alberta Public Libraries. The best part is that these items will be delivered directly to Lethbridge Public Library (Main Branch, Crossings Branch or the Bookmobile) for pick up

Please visit the Relais D2D website to request an item. Visit here for detailed instructions on how the system works.

Any requests made in TAL Online prior to February 10 will be processed, but, after that, any new requests must be made through Relais D2D.


Book Tournament

Vote for your favourite!

Throughout March, Lethbridge Public Library is engaging in a book tournament!
It’s 32 books across 8 fiction and non-fiction genres – each week winners from the week before will be pitted against each other.
Voting for Round One begins March 2.
