Placing a hold
If the library owns an item, but it is currently checked out, you can reserve the item by putting a a hold on it. Some new titles are in high demand and have long lists of patrons on hold. You can place holds in person, by telephone, or online. After notification, materials will be held for four days.
If we don’t own the item you are looking for and it’s not a new release, we can order it from another library in the state. You can place an interLibrary loan request in person or by telephone.
How to Place Holds Online
Search for the title of the item you want to place on hold. Then click on the Place Hold icon next to “Actions."
From the list of search results, choose a title and click on the Place Hold link at the top of the right hand menu (see below).
