Place Hold Request: What is a Hold?

Reserve materials from your Home LBC Library Branch for pick up!


Due to the current limitations of library resources and closures of our Washington DC & Philadelphia Branches,

we cannot fulfill Place Hold Requests for physical material until further notice from those locations.

We will continue to fulfill electronic requests and scan materials as we are permitted from the Lancaster Branch.

Place Hold is how students and employees reserve materials at their Home LBC Library Branch for pick up.
