HOW DO I PLACE A HOLD?
Browse through our online catalog and find the item you want to put a hold on
Click onto the Place Hold button next to the item you want to place a hold on
A window will pop up asking you to log into your Library Account
Enter the barcode on the back of your library card (that is your library card number) and enter your PIN
Your default PIN is the last four digits of your primary phone number on your library account.
A window will appear for you to specify the library where you want to pick-up your item when ready. Once you have selected the pick-up library, click Place Hold. The system will tell you if the hold was successfully placed or not.
Once you have placed a hold on an item, you will be able to see it when you are logged into your library account. It will show under the Holds tab.
If you have multiple holds and don't want to receive them all at once for pick-up, you can manage your holds in your library account by clicking on the ones you want to suspend until you are ready to pick them up.
