The City of Langley Library is a part of the Fraser Valley Regional Library (FVRL). FVRL is the largest public library system in British Columbia, with 25 community libraries serving 700,000 people in its service area. The City of Langley Library offers almost 17,000 square feet of collections and services.

Beginning June 1 you can start picking up library holds using our FVRL Express – Click, Pick, Go. The new contactless service offers customers a physically distanced way to pick up library holds and return items at all 25 locations.

How to Use FVRL Express

  1. Browse the catalogue and place holds now!
  2. Staff will pick and package the holds, and send an email when they are ready for pick up.
  3. Plan to pick up your items on your next essential outing or within 3 weeks of receiving the email. Please check your local library’s hours of operation prior to heading out.
  4. When you arrive at your pick up library follow all ground markings and signs to the pickup point. Ensure you maintain a safe physical distance of two meters, or six feet, between you and other customers at all times when in the queue.
  5. At the pickup point, show your library card or ID. Library staff will retrieve your packaged holds, place them outside the door, and motion to you when it’s safe to step forward and retrieve your package

Book Drops will reopen June 1. However there is no rush to return materials checked out to you prior to the closures – late fines will not accrue. You may only return items that fit through the book drop slot - please hold on to any oversized item (e.g. Playground item) until we can physically accept them back.
