How do I place a hold?


If the material you would like is checked out, or not available at your local branch, you may place a hold.  To place a hold online:


  • Find the item in the Catalog
  • Click "Place Request" under the item you wish to request
  • Enter your library card number and password then click "Log in"
  • On the next screen, select your pick-up library from the drop down menu, and your activation date, then click "Submit Request"

There is no charge to place a hold on an item.  If you place a hold on an item that is listed as available, please note that holds are pulled from the shelf at 8am the following business day. You will receive notification that your hold is available for pick-up via email, text message or phone call. 

Please contact your local branch to change your notification options.
