Q. What are holds?
A. Holds allow you to request that a title be delivered to your home library.
Once the title arrives at your library you will be sent an e-mail, receive a phone call, or receive a postcard informing you that the title is ready for you.
You will then have 8 days to pickup the title from your home library.
Q. I placed a hold, how long will it take to get here?
A. Holds are filled in the order they were placed as people return copies of the title.
Items owned by a library go to patrons of that library first. If no patrons of the library have a hold on the title it may be transferred to another library for usage.
Q. How can I keep a book longer?
A. To keep a book longer, login to your account and renew titles from your list of Checked Out titles.
Q. Why can't I renew online books?
A. Due to restrictions with the protection system, eBooks and Audio Books cannot be renewed.
However, if no one else has placed a hold on the title you can checkout the title again (and download it again).
If someone else has placed a hold on the title you will need to place a hold on the title and wait for it to become available again.
Q. How can I get books to read on my tablet or phone from the library?
A. You can limit your search to only eBooks, and eAudio Books by selecting the Online Collection search option when searching.
To further restrict your search by device select your device from the list of Compatible Devices that appear on the left side of the search results.
