Request a book?


If the item that you are looking for is currently checked out to another patron, or owned by another Mid-York Library, you may place a hold (request) on it. This will ensure that when the book becomes available or if it already is at another library, it gets sent to the library of your selection. When the book arrives, the library will contact you and you may pick it up.

In order to place a hold, a valid Mid-York library card is needed. Please see Get a Library Card for information if you do not have one.

The first step to placing a hold on an item is logging in to the Mid-York Catalog. You will need to type in your library card number (without the ‘A’) and your PIN (usually the last four digits of your phone number). After searching for and locating your materials, place the hold.

To place a Hold:

Click Place Hold to the right of the item on the search list, or on the record for the single item. If you haven’t already logged in, you will be prompted to do so. If you have logged in, a new window will appear where you can choose where to pick the item up.

When you are finished, click Place Hold. A new window will appear stating that you have placed it successfully. Don’t forget to log out when you are finished!

If you do not see a book that you would like in the Mid-York System, you may Interlibrary Loan the item. Call the library at 315.841.4651 and we will gladly assist you.

Receive a notice via email when your requested items are ready to be picked up! Just send an email to with your name & library card number. Email notices will replace telephone notices.  We will also notify you when items are overdue.
