Can I reserve materials?

Get the popular Library materials you want by placing a hold request on the item. Holds can be placed online via the catalog, by phone, or with help from a staff person. You can designate any Library location for your hold to be delivered to for your pick-up.

To place a hold by phone, call your Library or toll-free at 1-877-883-9900. Have your Library card number ready and be able to provide information about the item (title, author, etc.).

 

Can I renew materials?

Several methods are available for renewing materials, all designed for your convenience. Please note: you cannot renew an item if another patron is waiting for it. Materials can be renewed up to three times provided there is not a hold on the item.

  • Renew your library materials online at www.krl.org.
  • Renew by telephone. Call your Library location or toll-free at 1-877-883-9900 and ask to renew your materials. Be sure to have your card handy.
