Requests & Holds

You will need a valid Community District Library card and PIN. The PIN is the last four digits of your phone number. Place holds on materials by using the Valcat app, online, or by visiting or calling any branch location  during business hours.

Holds Notification

The Library will notify you by your preferred communication method of either text, email, or phone when your requested items are available at your preferred pickup location.

You may also check the status of holds and view other library card information online in My Account or via the Valcat app.

Materials will be kept on the hold shelf for 5 days from the date they are received. DVDs will be held for 3 days.

Still can’t find what you need?
