Place a hold

How do I place a hold?

HOLDS

If the book you want is out, you can place a hold (also called request) on it. Patrons can place their own holds at any PAC terminal, or as always, ask the librarian for assistance. Holds can also be placed by calling the Library or from any computer with the Library Catalog. Talking books may also be reserved, but not DVDs/videos, compact discs or school summer reading list books. Always have your library barcode number handy when placing a hold.  Click here to search the library catalog.

INTERLIBRARY LOAN

Books and other materials that are not owned by the Woodbridge Public Library can be borrowed for you from other libraries in New Jersey or across the country. Please read our Interlibrary Loan policy for complete details.

Filling out an ILL FORM starts the process without requiring you to visit one of our libraries to request an item. You will be notified when the item arrives. We will contact you if more information is needed, or if there is a change in the status of your request. If you have a problem submitting the form, please call the reference desk and place your request with the librarian.

Please do not use this form to request items that are listed in this catalog. If an item is listed in the catalog but is not currently on the shelf, please follow the instructions to place a hold on that title.

Current Best Sellers that are not listed in this catalog and books that are not yet published are not available through Interlibrary Loan.  Please speak to a librarian to request these titles.

If you are willing to accept any edition of the book, i.e. hardcover, paperback, etc. then provide us with the author and title only.

If you are requesting a specific edition or volume of a title, then provide us with the author and title, and as much information as you know about the publisher, publication date, and/ or ISBN.

Additional information needed to clarify your request can be made in the box marked "Comments".
