Request Holds

As a library card holder, you may request to have library materials held for you. You may place holds on items currently available on the library shelf; however, the library cannot guarantee holds will be immediately filled as another library user may have already placed a hold on the materials.

When the materials become available, the library will contact you by email or telephone. We will hold your requested materials for 7 days. You may request a hold:

  • In person at any library location
  • On the phone (you must have your library account number handy)

Additional Information

Interlibrary Loan -- This service is on pause until further notice.

If you would like to borrow a book not owned by Orange County Public Library, you may request an interlibrary loan to borrow books from another library system. You may make interlibrary loan requests in person at any Orange County Public Library location. We will require a processing fee of $3 at the time you make your request.
