Can I place a hold from home?

A hold request may be placed online using your library card number and PIN. To place a hold, search for the title(s) of interest in the library catalog. When the title is displayed, select the “Place Hold” button. The request form will be displayed. After entering your library card number and PIN, select the “Submit Hold” button. To ensure that you get the next available item, make sure to keep the "I want the first available copy" option selected. You will receive a test message or email notification, depending on your notification set-up, once the item(s) arrives. The item(s) availability will also display on your online account as "Arrived" once it is ready to be picked up. Holds will be available for pick up for up to 7 days, and a patron may only place 5 item(s) on hold at a time.
