Borrow from Other Libraries

There may be times when you want to borrow from another BC Library:

  1. You happen to be visiting another BC Library.
  2. You couldn’t find what you were looking for in your home library.

Visiting Other BC Libraries

If you’re on the road and find yourself in another BC public library, you can easily borrow items. The best part is that you can return these items to any other BC public library, so if you’re traveling through BC, it’s easy to drop items off as you go. We call this program BC OneCard. For more information on how to do this, check our BC OneCard page (please note that borrowing policies may vary slightly between various libraries).


Requesting Books to be Delivered to Your Home Library

If you weren’t able to find the item you wanted in our catalogue , try finding it elsewhere in BC using Outlook Online, a catalogue for all BC libraries. If you find it at another library, request it to be delivered to your home library for pick up!

You can also request books from other libraries in the Kootenay region  by using Kootenay Connect.  You can place a hold in the library’s online catalogue just as you would place a hold on a Fernie library book.  The book will be mailed to the Fernie library and you will be notified when it is received.  If you wish, the library can place holds for you.  Please come in or phone 250-423-4458 if you would like assistance.
