Theatre Alberta offers the fantastic service of mailing library material to our out of town members free of charge. We are gratified knowing that so many people are able to access our extensive collection. Occasionally, one of our precious parcels gets lost. Replacing the lost items can be time consuming, costly, and in some cases an item cannot be replaced. Therefore, if you use this service we would appreciate it if you could please remember to follow the instructions inserted in to each and every parcel we send out. Retaining the bottom portion of the return label is especially valuable when it comes to tracking a parcel that has gone astray in Canada Post’s myriad of mail.
Give us a call if you have any questions regarding this service and we will be happy to go over the details.
Thanks to Northern Light Theatre for their donation of scripts.
