Place a Hold

When you want an item that is checked out to another patron, or is owned by another Mid-York library, you can place a hold on it.

You will need a valid Mid-York library card to place a hold on materials. If you do not have a card, see Get a Library Card for instructions.

Log on to the Mid-York online catalog with your library card number and PIN number to search for materials available in the 43 member libraries.

To place holds:

  1. Click Place Hold next to the item you want on the hit list or on the record for the single item.
  2. You will be prompted to log on if you have not previously done so.
    The Submit Hold window appears.
  3. Select a library where you would like to pick up the item.
  4. Click Place Hold. A message should appear saying your hold was successfully placed.

To request books outside of the Mid-York system, please follow the Interlibrary Loan instructions.
