The Vancouver Public Library Board approved the permanent adoption of the Access card at its July 2015 meeting. This low-barrier card had been introduced as a pilot in March 2013. The pilot was extended with different parameters in September 2014. The approved parameters enable the card to be used by those with and without address ID. Borrowers are limited to 2 items at a time, and do not incur late fines. You can read the report at http://www.vpl.ca/images/uploads/file/pdf/AccessVPLCardPilotSixMonthPilotExtensionEvaluation.pdf.
