Placing Holds

You can place a hold yourself using the Catalogue from home or at the Library.
You can also ask staff at any location to place a hold for you.
A hold is active for one year, before expiring automatically.  If an extension is needed, ask staff.

As of April 26, 2018 you holds limit has increased to 250 (from 100)!
