BC OneCard

You can 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.

If you want more than the library offers BC OneCard customers, you may obtain full service by paying for a Temporary Membership.
