Reserving a Book, Video or Other Item
If we do not have the item you are looking for, chances are we can get what you want from another library, usually within a few days. We can look it up for you, place a hold for you and when it come in, we will give you a call to pick it up here at Forbush.
To Place a Request for an Item Yourself
Placing a request for an item from your home or public computer is easy. Go to “Online Catalog” to look for your item by keyword, title or author and make sure to choose “All Central MA libraries”. When you find what you are looking for, click on the “request” button on the right.
Type in your library card number where indicated but leave the pin number blank (unless you already have one). Click “Submit” and then type in your card number again, choose a four digit PIN number and confirm it. You are all set to use your account!
When your book comes in it will be put on the hold shelf at the main desk. It will stay there for 1 week before being sent back so remember to pick it up.
