FAQ About Interlibrary Loans with Illume

Where are Interlibrary Loans shipped from?

Interlibrary loans are shipped from libraries all across BC.

How long will it take for my book to arrive?

They usually average 2 to 4 weeks to arrive, but sometimes take longer.

I need the book sooner, can I get it another way?

If you need your loan by a certain date, please consider another method of obtaining it, since delivery dates cannot be guaranteed. For example, you can pick up items at most other public libraries in BC with your Squamish Public Library card and a piece of ID under the BC ONE CARD program.

How is my personal information collected?

Illume is a 3rd party program outside of the Squamish Public Library. Personal information is collected for Interlibrary Loan use only [by authority of the Library Act and Sec. 26 Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy Act] and may be shared with another library in BC.
