Placing Holds in the Kraemer Library Catalog

The Kraemer Family Library is pleased to announce that holds can now be placed on available items! You can request library materials online in the Kraemer Library Catalog and have them retrieved by library staff and held at the Circulation Desk. Please note that this service is provided for materials with an available status in the catalog. Materials that are checked out, on order, or are being processed will have a hold placed on them and you will be notified when they are available.

All registered Kraemer Family Library patrons can place holds.

What types of items can be placed on hold?
