Place a Hold

  1. Go to the Catalog.
  2. Log in according to the directions in Checking Your Account (above)
  3. Once you’ve found the book you want to place a hold on, simple look for the “checkmark” graphic and click the [Place a Hold] link next to it.
  4. In the popup screen, select where you would like to pick the item up (Lobby or Drive Up) and indicate if you need it by a certain date. Click [Submit] when finished.
  5. We will notify you once the item is ready for pickup.

Hint: If the item is on shelf, call us (630-279-8696) and we’ll have it waiting at the Checkout Desk or Drive Up (whichever your preference) in an hour. (During hours the Library is open)

Can’t find it in our catalog? Place a hold with LINKin.
