Requesting Items

If a book is checked out, you can recall it using My Library Account. Log in, search the catalog for the item you want to recall, then click on the hold/recall button. The patron who has the book checked out is guaranteed two weeks from the date of checkout, after which the item will be due within 7 days of the recall notification. You will be notified by email when it’s available. All books are subject to recall.

Recalled items not returned by the specified date will incur a late fee of $1.00 per day. In addition, check out privileges are suspended until the item is returned.

If an item is available you may place a hold on the item and have it held for you at the Library Services Desk. Log in to My Library Account, search the catalog for the item you want to request, then click on the hold/recall button. Please allow up to 24 hours for hold requests to be processed. Once your requested item is available, you will receive an email notification that it’s ready to be picked up at the Library Services Desk.

To request an item from another library, please visit the Resource Sharing page to find out how to request items through Interlibrary Loan and PASCAL Delivers.

If an item is listed as in process in our catalog, it generally means that we haven’t quite finished with making it shelf ready. You can complete the in-process request form to be the first person in line for the book. Please allow at least one week for completion of procession.
