Borrowing services

We offer the following services to make borrowing and using our collections easier:

Get email notices for items

Ask to get email notifications by calling or visiting us, or by signing up through My GPL Account. You will get the following notices via email:

  • Hold notices: when an item you had on hold is available for pick up
  • Pre-overdue notices: the day before an item is due back
  • Overdue notices: receive these two weeks and four weeks after an item is overdue.

Why you should get email notification

Email notification helps you avoid missing your holds and accruing overdue fines and other fees on your account. We do not send spam or any other messages that are unrelated to your holds or borrowed items.

Place holds

Get on the waiting list for books, DVDs, magazines, or most other Library items by placing a hold. You can place a hold in-person, by phone or online through My GPL Account. This can be done if the item you want is checked out by someone else or if it is otherwise temporarily unavailable. To learn how, go to Place a hold.

Renew loan periods

You can extend your due date if you need more time with your item. Please note the following restrictions:

  • Each item may be renewed up to five times
  • Each renewal period is the same as the original loan period
  • You may renew over the phone, in person or by logging onto My GPL Account
  • Items cannot be renewed if the item has been requested by another patron
