Book Hold Requests

You may place a hold on a book available in the Library and Library Staff will pull the book for you and notify you when it is ready to pick up.  Placing a hold on a currently charged-out book is NOT ADVISED. Please turn to EZBorrow or ILLiad to request the book from another library or email staff for additional help at

To place a hold:

(1) Search the Primo catalog for the book you need and display the record.

(2) If you are not logged in to Primo, you will need to login using the link in the "Get It" section.

(3) Click on "request pickup" and fill out the required information and click on "Request".

Primo places the hold, and you will be notified by email when the book is available. 

EXCEPTIONS:  Holds may not be placed on reserve material, microforms, items located in special collections/archives or items in the reference collection.


If you need a book that is currently in use, please turn to EZBorrow or ILLiad to request it from another library.  If that's not an option, please contact us at for assistance.
