Place a hold
You may place requests by accessing your account by clicking on My Card, in person at any library location, or by phone (905) 793-4636. Please be prepared to provide your library card number. You will be notified by email if you provided your email address, or by telephone via the Library’s automated voice system when your request is available to be picked up.
