Reserves (Holds)
To place a reserve (or hold) you must supply the 14-digit barcode number on your library card (see example at right). Your reserved items will be sent to the WLS Library of your choice for pickup. You will receive a your choice of a printed notice, an e-mail, or a phone call when the item arrives at your library. When a title you want is already checked out, you may be able to place a hold on it. Again, you must have your Library Card barcode number. When the item is checked in and it is your turn to check out the item, the library will notify you that it is available. If other library patrons have placed a hold on the item, you may have to wait until those who have requested the item ahead of you are able to check out the item. When it is your turn to check out the item, you must pick it up within one week or it will go on to the next patron.

ILL Services

The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Services allow you to obtain print materials, such as books and magazine articles, as well as microfilm of old newspapers, that are not owned within the Westchester Library System.

WLS does not charge for ILL Services, however certain lending institutions have loan policies that include charging fees or on-site-use-only restrictions. If they become our only options, you will be contacted for permission to proceed. You can cancel a request if you decline to pay the charge or do not want to use the material in the library.

The average time to obtain the materials is one to four weeks; some obscure materials may take longer to get. The time it takes depends on availability of the materials requested, location and staff situation of the owning libraries, and the type of delivery.

You may place an ILL request in person at any public library in Westchester County, or follow the appropriate link below to submit your request online. You can have the requested materials delivered to any WLS member library for you to pick up, but you must return the materials to the same library where they have been checked out.
