Place a Book on Hold
Do you want to be the “next in line” to borrow a book that is checked out? Can’t make it to the library right away but want to ensure a book will be held for you? You may place holds on books you would like to borrow!
How do I place a hold?
Hold requests can be made by telephone, email or in person at the Library during regular library hours. Before requesting a hold, please check the Library Catalogue to be sure that you know the call number, author, and title.
