Returning Books to Other Libraries

You can return items from any Lower Mainland public library to any other Lower Mainland public library. They will be sent back to their home library system (e.g., Coquitlam Public Library). NOTE: this means items in your account may temporarily show as overdue until they make it back to their home library system. When the items are checked in at their home library system, they will be back-dated.
