Requesting An Item
For Our Collection

Have you seen or heard about a title that isn't in the library's catalog?

We would be happy to explore the possibility of ordering it for our collection but we'll need some information from this form Site

When all available copies of a title are checked out, or if a customer online finds an item on the shelves they would like pulled for them, a hold can be placed on that particular item. Holds can be placed by phone, in person, or online Site

A valid library card (with less than $10.00 in fines on it) and PIN is needed to place holds online. Holds may not be placed on reference material, magazines, video games, or fiction DVDs.

 Picking Up Holds

When a hold becomes available, you will be contacted by a telephone call or postal mail. The Jessamine County Public Library will hold items for up to four days after they become available. After four days the items will be either returned to the collection or made available to the next person in line with a hold on the item. If you need longer than four days to pick up your hold, please call 859-885-3523 or e-mail us.

Holds may only be picked up by the person whose name is on the account on which the hold was originally placed. However, holds for customers under 18 may be picked up by their parents or legal guardians.

The Jessamine County Public Library offers an option to allow spouses or friends to pick up available holds. Please contact the Circulation Desk for more information.
