For Face-to-Face classes at the New Westminster campus, we are now offering the following services:
The Library’s curbside pickup and return is for borrowers who are not authorized to come on campus.
These borrowers are eligible for the free mailing service, but they may prefer to pick up their items instead of waiting for the mail, or return items that may not fit in return bin (e.g. equipment).
Authorized borrowers such as students and instructors in face to face courses held at New West campus, and authorized JIBC staff and faculty may continue to pick up and return by appointment in the atrium.
This is used only for equipment or if items are too large to put into the return bin.
At this time, the printer/copier and desktop computers in the Library are not available.
