Theatre Alberta’s script library has more than 23,000 titles of playscripts, musicals, periodicals, and reference materials. You may search for plays in our collection using our Online Catalogue, The Library Indexes, or by visiting our library (in-person library visits will resume Monday, September 13, 2021 on a modified schedule – see below). 

Book borrowing privileges are reserved for Theatre Alberta members. Theatre Alberta Members in search of plays beyond the scope of our collection have access to additional resource collections. Not yet a member? Join Theatre Alberta today! 

Contact & Hours

Hey Library friends! Heads up that the Theatre Alberta Library at the Percy Page Centre in Edmonton will remain closed for in-person visits for the time being. We will re-evaluate our opening plans regularly as provincial health measures evolve and with the health and safety of our patrons and staff as our primary concern.

In the meantime, we’re once again able to circulate Library items via Canada Post for all Theatre Alberta members. Browse the catalog online, reserve some books, and we’ll send them out to you! And please don’t forget to check out the amazing Drama Online databases available to all members!

If you’d like to contact the Library please email [email protected] or leave us a message at 780-422-8162.

Gift-a-Play 2021 - Thank You!

Library Lending Policy

  • Loan period: 28 days


Postal Service

Theatre Alberta will mail items to those members residing anywhere in Canada. Mailing and return postage is free to members.

Overdues and Fines / Lost Items

Late fees on overdue items will no longer be charged after September 1st, 2020, and all previous fines will be waived, as long as you are current member of Theatre Alberta.

When you take out books, you may renew them up to five times, unless an item that you have taken out has been requested by another member. If a member has requested an item that you currently have out, you will not be able to renew the item. Renewals of checked out items still need to be made by members through their online accounts or by the librarian.

If you have not returned the item after the fifth renewal, your Theatre Alberta membership will be suspended until the book is returned or replaced. A book may be replaced by paying a $25.00 replacement fee, or by providing a clean copy of a published script for the library collection. Please contact the librarian: [email protected] should you wish to provide a script.
