How can I use InterLINK?
You may use one library card to borrow library materials
anywhere in the InterLINK system. You are eligibile to do this
• You live in a community served by InterLINK, or
• You have a valid library card from any InterLINK library
• You register that card at any of the other InterLINK
When you register you need one InterLINK library card of your
choice and identification that shows your current address. Library
websites provide information on their membership process and
normally list acceptable i.d.
What if I already have several Library Cards?
You can choose to use any one of these cards at all lnterLINK
libraries. Most people choose to use the card from their home
town/city. You may return the cards you no longer need and have
staff register the card number you prefer to use in other InterLINK
Is there a charge for using InterLINK?
No. InterLINK is funded by member libraries and a grant from the
Ministry of Education.
How much can I borrow and for how long?
The number of items and the length of time you can borrow them
varies between libraries. You will need to follow the policies of
the lending library.
Where should I return the material I have borrowed?
You may return all InterLINK materials to any InterLINK library,
but they are not cleared from your record until they reach the
lending library. InterLINK operates a delivery network moving
materials among the 18 member libraries.
How do I pay for late, lost or damaged materials?
The costs are paid at the lending library.
What if I can't get to the other libraries to borrow the
material i want?
If you can't visit other libraries directly, you may ask for
materials to be sent from one library to another.
How is the InterLINK service different from BC OneCARD?
As a resident of the InterLINK area, you have full borrowing
privileges at all our member libraries. Some libraries
participating in BC OneCARD have restrictions on the number or type
of items you may borrow.
How do I obtain more information about BC OneCard?
The BC OneCard service allows you to register for library
service at any public library in the province if you can show a
library card from another B.C. public library. You will need to
provide current contact information and show identification with
your current address as well. You will be given a BC OneCard that
you can use at all other public libraries outside of the InterLINK
