Memberships

Who can join EGCL? Anyone living in Lancaster Park or Sturgeon County can become a Library member. If you live outside of Lancaster Park or Sturgeon County and would like to be a member, please use your local library card, go to ME Libraries and sign up as a member of TRAC. You'll be able to come to EGCL and borrow materials just like anyone else.

How can I become a Library member? Joining the Library is easy! Just come by with a piece of ID and we'll sign you up. It's that simple.

How much is a Library membership? EGCL currently are FREE!

NOTE: EGCL is a public library. As such it is open to all members of the public, not just military and DND members and their families. While we do our best to serve the needs of the military community and focus our collection development accordingly, please keep in mind that we serve all of Sturgeon County and all ME Library patrons as well.

Am I considered a Sturgeon County Resident? Residents are public and military members living in Sturgeon County (including Bon Accord, Gibbons, Morinville, Redwater), Lancaster Park, or single quarters in Edmonton Garrison. So if you live in one of these places, you are considered a Sturgeon County resident.

Who are Non-Residents? Anyone who resides outside of Sturgeon County, including public and military members living in Edmonton, Legal, St. Albert, Fort Saskatchewan, etc. Non-residents are encouraged to obtain a library card from their local library and use their local library card to join ME Libraries, where they can sign up as a member of TRAC. ME Libraries allows non-residents to borrow materials from EGCL (and any other participating library in Alberta, including such libraries as Edmonton Public, St. Albert Public, Calgary Public, Wainwright and Cold Lake) just like a resident patron.
