Forbes Library offers self-service, in-library pickup of holds during the library’s open hours. Appointments are not required. An alternative, Curbside Pickup is also available.

You may place holds through the Library’s online catalog. (If you are new to placing holds, you may wish to read the CW MARS Catalog Help page.)

When your materials are ready you may come check them out anytime the library is open (library hours).

Holds pick-up procedure

    • Bring your library card to use at the self-check station.
    • Enter the building and immediately turn right into the reference room. Holds are arranged on the shelves alphabetically by the first four letters of your last name, followed by the last four numbers of your library barcode/card number.
    • Take your items to a self-check station to check out. (Self-check stations are available in the Reference Room and the Lobby.)

You will find self-check instructions at each station. Staff are nearby to help.
