    How to place a hold:

    To place a hold, search our:
online catalogue

Do we have the book, audiobook, magazine or DVD you're looking for,but it's currently checked out to someone else? We welcome you to go on the waiting list by placing it on 'hold'. When it's your turn, we'll let you know by phone or email when it's to pick up!

  How do I put something on hold? 

    Cardholders may reserve/hold library materials in person, online, or by phone.

   1. To place a hold in person or on the phone, just have your card, the title, and author
       information ready and ask a staff member to place the hold for you.

       and PIN code sign into My Account, then search again for the title you would like.
