Returning checked out items & Library account fines

Returning Library items >>

Quest is in Phase I of its Covid-19 Exposure Control Plans, meaning only essential services staff are permitted on campus. Unfortunately, this will make it difficult to return library items you may already have checked out.

There are currently two options:

  1. Please email library@questu.ca and we will make arrangements to safely pick-up your items in Squamish.
  2. If you are off campus and still have books or DVDs checked out, please consider mailing the items to Quest Library, while also sending us an email to let us know they’re on their way.

Quest University Canada Library
3200 University Boulevard
Squamish, BC V8B 0N8

Library Fines >>

Don’t worry, there won’t be any fines for overdue books. For unreturned (lost) or damaged items, we will have to consider charging replacement costs.
