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:
- Click Place Hold next to the item you want on the hit list or on the record for the single item.
- You will be prompted to log on if you have not previously done so.
The Submit Hold window appears.
- Select a library where you would like to pick up the item.
- 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.
