Placing Holds

You can place holds on items available at your home library or any SWAN library. This includes items like books, audio, video, and digital items for download.

On average, it takes three days for an item to arrive at your pickup library once it’s available. A hold pickup notice will be delivered via text message, email, or phone depending on the option chosen.
