Place a Hold

Patrons will notice the “Place Hold” option has been removed for print items. This will last only while LION Libraries are closed for the COVID-19 pandemic. The reasons are two-fold: Our libraries aren’t able to share items with the public at the moment, and we don’t want to overwhelm our delivery service when we return to normal operations. Patrons will still be able to add items to their personal lists for future reference.

Enter the title of the book you want in the Search our Catalog box (located in the right column on computers/tablets or below on mobile devices). Drop down options allow a search by author, keyword, subject, etc.

Once you find the item, click on the “Place Hold” button on the right.


Type your name, library card number and pick-up location and click submit.
When the item is ready to pick up, you will receive a call or email.

If the item is available via Hoopla, you can download it automatically by creating an account on with your library card barcode, or download the app for your phone/tablet.
