Borrowing Policies

Books, audiobooks, and magazines may be borrowed from the library for 3 weeks. DVDs may be borrowed for 2 weeks.

Items may be renewed twice unless there is request for a hold on the item by another library patron. Patrons must present their library card at time of loan.

Inter-library loan books are loaned to patrons for up to three weeks. If you requested your Inter-Library loan through BC Interlibrary Connect, you can renew your books through your library account.

Patrons wishing to renew Interlibrary items they requested through Illume must request the renewal at the Dawson Creek Public Library and staff will contact the loaning library and ask for a renewal. It is at the discretion of the loaning library to grant the request for a ILL renewal.

Books returned late will accumulate fines. The library contacts patrons by phone with items overdue after two weeks. If items are not returned, the library will send a letter asking for the items to be returned. Failure to return library materials will result in suspension of borrowing privileges.

Patrons will be required to pay for lost or damaged materials. The library does not accept a replacement item for lost or damaged books.

Computers & Internet Use

Public internet computers are available free of charge to the public. Users must sign up at the circulation desk for up to one hour per day maximum. Patrons under 16-years-old must produce a library card which shows internet computer permission from a parent or guardian. The library also has free wireless internet access.

Photocopying, Printing and Scanning

Photocopying and printing are available for $0.25/page and scanning is free.
