Borrow from the Interlibrary Loan System
If none of the Richmond branches has the book you want, we can get it for you for free from other BC library systems through interlibrary loans. Request for the book in one of the three ways:

  1. submit an InterLibrary Loan (ILL) request in Illume Online.
  2. While you’re in the library, ask a staff to submit an ILL request on your behalf.
  3. Email us with your request.
