| Renew and Reserve Materials
The following items may not be renewed:
Materials may be renewed four ways:
Renewing an overdue item will not erase the accrued fine, but you can avoid the fine if you renew the material before it's due.
Holds may be placed on titles listed in the library's computer catalog that are checked out and not currently available. You may have up to 35 holds at any given time and can place your own holds at any public terminal or by visiting your online account. If you're not sure how to reserve a book, Information Desk staff will be happy to help.
Notification of holds ready for pickup is made by the Automated Account Information and Renewal System or by e-mail. Sign up for notices at Checkout.
A notice is mailed to patrons who cannot be reached by phone or e-mail.
To preserve patron confidentiality, the phone call does not list the particular item on hold.
To search for your holds, please look for your Hold I.D., which is the first three letters of your last name, and the last four digits of your library card barcode number. For example, if Ima Patron's card number ends in 5555, her Hold I.D. would be PAT5555.
Please note: you must bring your library card (or the card that placed the hold) with you in order to check out your reserved item. Transferring holds to another card is not possible.
Reserved HPL items will be held for ten days (hold time for items reserved from other ALS libraries varies by library). You may cancel holds or delay notification by making them inactive on any library catalog computer or by visiting your online account.
