An Alberta Library Card is required to borrow materials.  Rochester Library does not charge for a library membership if you live within the Rochester area or if you attend Rochester School.  

Library books may be ordered or renewed online through TRACpac. Any fiction or non-fiction resource not available in the TRACpac collection may be requested from another Alberta library through TAL Online. This service is available to library members only.

Patrons are responsible for all materials signed out on their membership.  If an item is lost or returned damaged, the patron must pay the fines/fees before any other items may be checked out.
