Use the catalog to place a hold online or call your nearest branch for assistance placing a hold on an item (library card required). You will be notified when your hold is available for checkout. Schedule a pickup time online or over the phone.
1. Log into 'My Account'.
2. Go to your 'On Hold' page under 'My Borrowing'.
3. Click on the current library ‘Pick up at’ drop down menu associated with the item for which you want to change the pickup location.
4. Select the branch you would like your holds sent to.
(NOTE: The pickup location for a hold can NOT be changed online once the item is in transit to the current pickup location OR if it’s already on the hold shelf awaiting pickup. If either of these is the case, you will need to call the location that has your hold so they can send it to the location you'd like.)
Libraries work best when everyone shares responsibly - so even if we do not have fines, we ask that you please honor our checkout time limits. If materials are not returned, after enough time passes we would consider the book "lost" and a bill would be sent to replace the item. And we definitely don't want to have to do that!
You can walk up to our buildings and call to let staff know you are ready to pick up your hold.
You may bring your donations (four boxes or less) to the Library Services Center, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m, or your branch. The center is located at 2450 N. Meridian St. Please box your books (no bags and no loose donations) and close the boxes before donating.
Yes, you can pause your holds.
