If a book is on hold, it means that it has been requested by a patron. The catalogue will display “On hold shelf". The item may be picked up from the branch selected by the person who placed the request. The book will be reserved for that individual for ten days. If it is not picked up within that time, it will be returned to its collection or go to the next person who has requested it.
If you have received notification about a hold being placed on a book that you currently have out, it means that there has been a request for that title. This hold will prevent you from renewing your loan. Please return it at the time specified in the notice, otherwise, you will accrue overdue fines. The fines are $5.00 per day for recalled items.
