Booking Seat & Space

Complete the BC Self-Assessment Tool the day of your booking and follow the guidelines provided.

Do not enter the space if...

  • You have COVID-19 symptoms or have experienced COVID-19 like symptoms in the past 14 days.
  • You have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 or COVID-19 like symptoms within the past 14 days.
  • You have travelled outside of Canada or arrived from outside of Canada in the past 14 days.

Non-medical masks are required to be worn in the library.  If you have forgotten yours, we can provide you with one and are available at the Service Desk.   Masks may be removed briefly and intermittently to drink.

Masks and distancing are required in the VCC Libraries for your safety and the safety of others. At the first instance of non-compliance with these requirements, you will receive a gentle reminder. If further instances of non-compliance occur, you will be asked for follow-up contact information, and you may be asked to leave the building. Repeated instances of safety guidelines violations may result in losing future booking privileges.

This is what is in the confirmation email when booking is complete:
