In response to the Public Health Crisis and the temporary closing of many of our member libraries, we are making the following announcement:

We are limiting hold requests to local pickup only – your requests from other libraries can only be picked up at your home library during this time.

Holds will only be fulfilled on materials for which your local library is the designated pickup location.

Your place in the hold line is safe.

If you have placed an item on hold for pickup at a non-local library, you will not lose your place in line. However, if you update your request and choose your home library as the pickup location, this will activate your request, and it will be filled even faster. We will start filling holds that are designated for non-local pickup once the crisis has passed.

Holds limit on physical material is increased to 20.

To further improve your library experience, the maximum number of simultaneous holds has been increased from 10 to 20. These additional holds can be used for reserving additional physical material or reserving new titles not yet available. The additional holds are available now!

Library Cards

Access to library eContent is still available for patrons in good standing. Visit your local library's website or eBCCLS.org for more info.

We appreciate your patience as we work through this difficult time. Please know our commitment to our patrons and their safety remains foremost in our thoughts.

During this time of social distancing, many of our libraries have chosen to live stream events for their patrons. Find a live streaming event for you by click the link below!
