When you want to reserve a book or other item that we have here at our library or borrow something from another library to pick up here, you can place a hold. Follow these steps:

1. Go to our homepage to search the catalog. If you know the title of the item you want, type it in the box, select “title” from the dropdown list and click “search”. If you want to browse for an item you can search by author, subject or keyword.

2. When you find what you are looking for click on “Place hold”. Enter your library card number and password (PIN that you were given or selected when you got your card).

3. To confirm, make sure that “Portville Free Library” is selected as the pickup location the click “CONFIRM HOLD”.
