Due Dates and Late Fees 

You do NOT need to come to campus to renew library materials. You can renew online using your library card number and PIN. For more information, see our Borrow page. If you have any problems renewing, or need any assistance  please contact us at 780-791-4917 or email.

Late fees: 
  • As of September 2020,  items borrowed from other libraries may accumulate fines. For more information, please see our Borrowing Policies section.

  • We realize that library fines that have accumulated since March 13 may impede your ability to register for college classes. To ensure your ability to register for classes, the library will not be placing financial holds on student accounts due to the fines incurred during the library’s closed period. If you have previous fines that were incurred prior to or  following the closure the financial hold policy may still apply. If you have questions or concerns about a financial hold placed on your account, please contact us at 780-791-4917 oremail. 

  • Borrowed material can now be returned to the Keyano College Library. Items can be returned through the book drop outside the library doors or inside the library in the book drop at the circulation desk. Returned items will be quarantined for a period of 96 hours and all fines for Keyano College items will be waived upon return. 

If you are self-isolating, please do not return your items until following the end of your self-isolation period.
