Placing Holds

Holds can be placed on items in our collection in person, by phone (905-884-9288) or online. Holds can be placed on print and digital items that are currently checked out or available to borrow at an RHPL location.

To place a hold online, visit our Catalogue and find the desired item. From there, click on "Place Hold." You'll be prompted to log in to your RHPL account.

You'll be notified when your item arrives; your item will be held until the date specified in your notification message. When picking up holds, you must bring the card on which the hold was placed in order to check it out.

Holds may be placed on all material with the following exceptions:

  • Children's DVDs
  • Music CDs
  • Magazines
  • DVDs – theatrical/feature films
  • Express books
  • iPads
