Request a checked out book

There will be times when the materials you need are already checked out to another patron. You may request that the current user return materials prior to the originally assigned due date. The material will then be held for you at the branch library of your choice. Please note some items, such as DVDs, cannot be requested.

To request materials (either when they have been checked out by another patron or when they are located in the Remote Storage Facility), search for the title in Addison. Select the request icon (a green checkmark) at the top of the screen. Complete the form and click submit.

Items that you have checked out are subject to being recalled or requested by other patrons.  If another patron requests an item you have on your account, this will reset your due date to either 3 weeks from the date of request, or your current due date, whichever is sooner.  In the case that your item has been requested to be placed on reserve for a class, your item will be due 1 week from the date of request, or the due date, whichever is sooner.

ALL patrons are fined $1.00 per day per item for overdue recalled items.
