Reserve Materials

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.
