To place a hold using our online catalog

  • Find the title you want.
    • If there are copies available, please call 847-566-8702 to have us set it aside for you; holds placed through the computer are not pulled until the next business day.
    • If no copies are available (status for all call number says "Checked Out") click the Place Hold button.

No item may be reserved by or for a specific date.

Most circulating materials owned by the Fremont Public Library District may be reserved by Fremont cardholders. Priority is given to Fremont cardholders for any reserved materials; non-Fremont cardholders may not be able to place holds on all items. 

Fremont Public Library is a member of a material-sharing consortium, and patrons may request items we do not own from other member libraries, but some restrictions apply. If an item is in limited supply (only one or two libraries owns it) and the hold is not allowed online, please call or email us about the title. We may be able to obtain it through InterLibrary Loan outside our catalog consortium.

You will be notified by telephone or e-mail when your item is available and ready for pick-up. Reserves/holds must be picked up within five days of notification. Click to set up holds notification via email.
