Some BC college and university libraries provide community borrower privileges.   Many charge a fee for these borrowing privileges.  Also ask about in-library guest login to computers and on-site database access.

Students registered at BC public college or university may request a free community borrower card at most BC public post-secondary libraries.  Refer to the Council of Post-Secondary Library Directors (CPSLD) webpage on reciprocal borrowing for a list of participating libraries.  Access may allow in-library computer user and in-library guest access to databases.
