Step 3: Library staff will check out your items and bag them with your name attached to the outside of the bag. Your bag will be waiting for you on the white table in the lobby of the Marshall St. doors of the library.

Please note that our phone lines may be busy, but leave a message and we'll call back as soon as we are able. 

How to Place Holds

There's multiple ways to place holds!

You can still place holds within the MORE library catalog, but as our delivery system is slower than normal due to staffing shortages, it may take a little longer for your items to arrive. We greatly appreciate your patience and are happy to recommend titles available at Rice Lake while you wait.
