Place a Hold for Pickup

If you would like to limit your time in the library, you can place a hold on an item and we have it available for you to pick up at the desk or via curbside pickup.

You can search and place holds through the online catalog. To log in, your user name is the number from your library card (no space), and your password is the last 4 digits of your phone number.

Please be advised that items coming from other libraries may anywhere from a few days to over a week, depending on distance and delivery schedules. Wait time can also be longer for items that are very popular or in limited supply.
