Our automated catalogue services will be unavailable from Saturday, June 29 at 9 p.m. until Tuesday, July 2 at 5 a.m. so that our service provider, BC Library Cooperative, can upgrade the system province-wide. The upgrade promises to improve the system for Library patrons and staff.
During the shutdown you will not be able to perform the following tasks:
- Search the catalogue.
- Place holds.
- Renew your materials.
- View your account.
- Use research databases available through our website.
- Download eBooks and audio books from Your Library without Walls, also known as Overdrive.
Overdrive users please note: Overdrive has agreed to extend the 'pick up' dates by three days during the upgrade, so your eBook and audio book holds will not be cancelled during the shutdown.
We apologize for any inconvenience you experience as a result of this service disruption.
