Items may be placed on hold over the phone, in person, or online.

When placing, suspending or canceling a hold online, you will need your library card number and pin number to log into your account.

When the item becomes available, patrons will be notified by their choice of email, text or phone call. The item will be held for seven days.

Digital items are held for 3 days once you are notified according to your settings in OverDrive.
