Editing a Hold


For an item which is not yet available for you, you may change the pickup location you've designated.

For an item which is available for you, please contact the library branch where that item is waiting for you.

You may create, remove or edit the date you would like your hold request to expire. Note: When the expiration date passes, the hold will be removed from your account. This is not the same as suspending a hold.
