General BC OneCard Information:
A library card from your home public library opens the door to public libraries wherever you travel – or stay – in British Columbia. Don’t leave home without it.
What does the BC OneCard service include?
You can use your Use your BC OneCard at any public library in the province. A BC OneCard allows you to check out materials and use services determined by each individual public library. Check with each library for a list of what it provides. Check your library’s website to see what you can use at your library. If you want more than the library offers BC OneCard customers, you may obtain full service by paying a non resident fee (at a rate set by each library).
How do I get BC OneCard?
Any BC resident who can show a valid public library card, can get a BC OneCard. Take your home public library card and current ID (with proof of your contact information) into any participating public library in BC other than your home library and ask for a BC OneCard decal. Don’t forget your home library card, you wont be able to sign up for a BC OneCard without it!
Where do I return materials that I’ve borrowed?
When borrowing materials the library you borrow the materials from will let you know when they are due back. You can return items to the library you borrowed them from, or to any participating BC OneCard library in the province – including your own library when you get home.
Where do I pay fines owing on books I borrow?
Fines and charges on materials are payable to the library you borrowed them from. Libraries are unable to take payment or charges that accumulate on items borrowed from other libraries.
If you weren’t able to find the item you wanted in our catalogue, you can find it elsewhere in BC using Illume, a catalogue for all BC libraries.
If you find something at another library, request an interlibrary loan to have the item delivered to Pemberton and District Public Library for pickup.
You can also contact staff for assistance.
