Charges for Holds, City Loans & Interloans

Listed here are charges for placing Holds (reserves), City Loan and Interloan requests.


You may place your own holds (reserves) online, either in the library or from home.  Alternatively, ask a librarian to place these for you.

When the  item arrives in the library you will receive a letter in the mail or by email. Please ensure your contact information is up-to-date.

Call in to the library with your card to have your hold issued. Items must be collected within 10 days.

You will be charged a fee of $1.10 when you collect your item.

We will do our utmost to get the item to you as soon as possible. It is difficult to estimate how long it will take, as this is determined by the current borrower or those who have already placed holds.

Holds may be placed on items showing "Available"..  Please note that occasionally an item with the status "Available" may be issued to another borrower before staff can take it from the shelf to fulfil the request.

If you phone the library for an available item, you may ask to have it set aside for you to collect, but the usual charge of $1.10 applies.
