Attention! From June 19th to July 17th, we will no longer be able to place holds that require materials to be transported between libraries. This is in anticipation of the revamped State delivery service due to start on or before July 17th. You WILL be able to place holds on materials that your library owns. Holds may be placed on other libraries’ materials, but must be picked up at and returned to the owning library. Thank you for your cooperation.
