How to place a online hold

How to place an online hold

Go to the Midway Library Website midway.bc.libraries.coop

In the upper right corner of the home page, you’ll find the green initial search box.

Type in your selection and click “Search” to see if we have the item. If we do, you may place a hold on it by clicking “Place Hold” beside the item.

A new window will open, prompting you to log in to your account. Type in your library card number and PIN (or user name and password). Click “Log In.”

If you do not know your PIN, email the library at midwaypubliclibrary@gmail.com or call and leave message at 250-449-2620.

The “Place Hold” window will come up. Please make sure your email address and phone number are correct. Click “Submit.”

If the item is available, you will get the message “Hold was successfully placed.” If not, you’ll get a message letting you know that.

If Midway Library does not have your item at the library, you can search all BC libraries. On the center of the screen, under “Library” press the arrow and scroll up to click “BC Interlibrary Connect” to view entire BC library catalogue.

Library staff will capture your hold and contact you with pick-up options.

Tips: Refine your search by adjusting the type and format of item (book, video).
