Why would I put a book on hold and how does it work?


You may want to put an item on hold if the item you want has already been checked out, if you want to make sure the item isn't checked out before you can arrive at the library, or to have us pull the book and have it ready for you before you arrive at the library. 

Placing Holds

You can request a hold on items that are on our shelves, check out, or at another branch by clicking the link that says Request under the "Get It" section of the item record.

A screen will come up that asks the you to enter in details of the title they are requesting, including material type, terms of use, and pick-up location.

Once this information is filled in, all you need to do is click the green REQUEST button at the bottom of the form and your request for a hold is submitted! 

When the item is returned, you will receive an email and a phone call letting you know your hold is ready for you to pick it up! Please be sure to bring a valid form of photo ID when you come to claim your hold.
