Holds and Renewals

Hold Requests

You can place a hold request for an item that is checked-in and available, or checked out. Library staff will set the item aside and notify you by phone or email when it is available for pick up. When an item has a hold request on it, it cannot be renewed by the person who currently has it on loan.

The loan period is reduced to two weeks (14 days) for high demand items.

You may place holds on up to 50 items per library card.
