Q. How do I request an item for pickup?


You can place requests for books, DVDs, and other items available in the library.  We'll collect them for you, so you can pick them up at the Circulation desk.

When you are in a record in SearchMore for an item that is available, you'll see the link "Place Request" to the left of the record. Click this link, sign into your account if you aren't already signed in, and then submit the form. You'll receive an email confirmation for the request and then receive another email later when the item is ready for pickup.
