Place A Hold

However you request your materials, we will call you or send you an email, text, or a postcard notification when your materials are ready for pick up.

Place Your Own Item Requests

You may place your own item requests electronically through the online catalog either from a computer in the Library or from your home or office. You may have up to 20 active hold requests at a time. Enter your library card number and PIN, request the item, and use the drop-down menu to choose your preferred library location for pickup.

In Person
Request assistance to place a HOLD at any Branch Library Reference Desk. You must have your library card with you to do this since we will need your barcode number to place the request for you.

By Telephone or Online from your home or office
Use our AskALibrarian service online or telephone the Reference Desk at any Springfield City Library location. Please include your mailing address, telephone number, and library card number, along with details of the items you want.

We will hold the item for you for one week at the circulation desk of the library location you specified for pick up.
