If you check out a book using your Alberta Library (TAL) card, you are able to return the book to any Alberta library. The library branch that receives your returned book will stamp the TAL bookmark inside the book with the date the book was returned. Once the book is received by the owning library, the book will be checked in with the date on the TAL book mark. Until the book is received by the owning library, it is possible that the book may accrue overdue fines and that the patron's record may become blocked from further library checkouts. However once the book is received, the fines will be removed.
