How can I get an item if it is currently checked out?

If an item is unavailable, you may place a hold on it. Once a copy is returned, JMRL will notify you by email or phone. To place a hold, click the "Place a Hold" button while viewing an item in the catalog. You will be prompted to log in with your name and library card number, then to choose your preferred pickup location. You may also call the reference desk 434.979.7151 ext 4 and library staff will put items on hold for you.
