can i put a hold on an available item (book)over the phone?
A $4 fine shouldn't stop you from placing a hold on a book. We do not take holds over the phone.
Holds are only available for books that are currently checked out. If a book is listed as available in the library catalogue, a hold cannot be placed upon it. We suggest coming into the library as soon as possible to check it out.
If the above information didn't address your issue, please email the library at firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance.
