Welcome to our Online Catalogue! See below for more information
At this time, while Covid-19 protocols are in place, in-person visits to the BCSA Community Library are restricted. You can now borrow books using our new online catalogue, and BCSA Staff will be happy to make your selected items available for pick-up at the Bamfield Community School.
To use The BCSA Community Library Online Catalogue:
1. Send an email to email@example.com to set up an account. Please include your full name, your preferred email address, and your phone number. You will only need to do this once.
2. BCSA Staff will email you with a Patron ID and Password for your account once it is set up. Use this info to sign in to your account. Click on the Sign In icon (it looks like a little person) at the top right of your screen.
3. Once you are logged in to your account, you can browse the collection using the Search Bar on the homepage to search for titles, authors, genres, or subjects. Use the Advanced Search function to further narrow your search. Click on the Star icon beneath the images to add items to your list of Favourites.
4. When you find an item you would like to borrow, click on the Hold button beneath the item's image. This will immediately send an alert to BCSA staff to set that item aside for you.
5. BCSA Staff will prepare your items for contactless pick-up at the Bamfield Community School. When the items are ready for pick-up, an email will be sent to the address you have provided.
6. Items are available to borrow for 21 days. Reminders to return borrowed items will be sent by email prior to due dates.
7. To renew a library item, find the item in your Patron Account, under My Borrowing. Click the blue Renew button next to the item and follow instructions. If no one else is waiting for the item, items are renewed for 14 days.
PLEASE NOTE: This catalogue is still under construction and BCSA Staff are adding more titles all the time. Thank you for your patience.
Currently, the Adult Fiction (FIC), Young Adult Fiction (YA), and Juvenile Fiction (JF) sections have been catalogued. Young children's books, DVDs, audiobooks, and all non-fiction books have yet to be added to the catalogue. If there is an item you would like to borrow but you do not see it listed, please reach out via email or phone.
