How do I place a hold on library materials?
If the item you are looking for is checked out to another customer, or if you want an item sent to your favorite Richland Library location, you can place that item on hold.
To place a hold, search Richland Library's online catalog to find the title of the item, you wish to reserve. Follow the steps below and check out this screencast tutorial if you need additional help.
If you do not have access to a computer you are always welcome to call or visit any Richland Library location, to have staff assist you with placing a hold on library materials.
After you click the "Place a Hold" button you will be prompted to log in to your library account (if you're not logged in already). Input your library card number (no spaces) in the top box and your 4 digit pin (typically the last four digits of your primary phone number) in the bottom box. Click Log on.
Your hold will be sent to the pickup location and you will receive notification of the hold either by phone or email, depending on your notification preference. The item will stay on the holds shelf for 7 days. If the item is not picked up by then it will either go onto the next customer or back onto the shelf.
Now all you need to do read freely, listen freely, or watch freely!
