  • The service operates Monday to Thursday (10 am to 8 pm) and Friday (10 am to 5 pm).   

Who can use the service?

  • We will assist all patrons who approach the service through Interlink libraries' websites, answering questions from BC patrons or about BC within operational capacity.
  • When answering questions from non-residents, staff will try to refer patrons to their home library resources.

We respond to all types of questions that are typically answered by library staff:

  • Research questions
  • Quick reference and directional questions
