Place a Hold

Using any computer with access to the Internet, you may request library materials be held for you and specify at which library you wish to pick them up when they become available. You will be notified by the method set in your library account. Here's how to place a hold:

  • Search the library catalog for the title you wish to request
  • Once you locate the title, click on it to pull up the title record
  • Click the Request Any Copy button to the lower right of the title information
  • Enter the barcode from your library card
  • Click Access Your Library Account below
  • Select a pickup location from the pulldown box
  • Click the blue Request button

The confirmation screen indicates whether your request was successfully placed. Your position in the hold queue and pickup location are displayed. The method by which you will be notified is not specified. To verify how the library will contact you, call the library at 757.259.7753.
