You can place holds while at the library or while using the library’s online catalog (also accessible at any online terminal in the library.)

To place a hold on an item when using the library’s web catalog:

  1. Click on the words Place Hold. After doing this, a login screen will appear.
  2. You will need to type in the entire number from the back of your library card under the words Library Card Number. DO NOT TYPE IN SPACES OR DASHES IN YOUR LIBRARY CARD NUMBER! Next to your library card number, type in your PIN. Your PIN is the last four digits of your phone number.
  3. Then click on Login. A Place a Hold screen will appear.
  4. Please check to see that Montello is the pickup location. If this is correct, please click on Submit Hold

If you have an email address on file, you will receive a notice when the item arrives at the library for you.

Note: If you get a message saying your attempt has been unsuccessful, please check to make sure you typed in the correct numbers. If you’ve typed in the correct numbers, but are still getting an unsuccessful message, you may not have a PIN, please contact the library at 297-7544 to set one up.
