How do I place holds?

You can search for and place holds on items using the online catalog. You will need your library card number and your password. The password is the month and day of your birthday as a four-digit number. We have a PDF that can help walk you through the process that we are happy to email to you, or call us for help over the phone.

You can also call us and we will place items on hold for you. (Please limit to 5 items per call) or email us at
