If you cannot find the item you want you want in our catalogue, it may be available from another BC library.

First look in our expanded Interlibrary Connect (ILC) catalogue. Scroll to the top of the drop-down menu next to ‘Library’ and choose ‘BC Interlibrary Connect’ to search over 40 BC libraries.  Log into your account to place a hold. The item will be shipped to Smithers Public Library and you will be notified when it is ready to pick up.

If you still haven’t found your selection, request an Interlibrary Loan through Outlook Online. It will be delivered to Smithers Public Library for pickup.

Search Outlook Online and request up to 3 items at one time yourself or library staff can find and submit a request for you.

Please remember to check our catalogue before requesting an Interlibrary Loan. Scroll to the top of  the pull-down menu next to ‘Library and change Smithers Public Library to BC Interlibrary Connect“.

Whether you use ILC or Outlook Online, we will contact you as soon as your selection is ready for pick-up in Smithers.
