Reserve Express Instructions

Set up your online account to automatically place holds on new books from certain authors.

 

Log in to your online account on the library's catalog website and click the "My Account" button.

 

Select "Reserves / Requests" on the top of the pop up.

 

Click on "receive new items" in the first item in the bullet point list.

 

Scroll through the list using the scroll bar (indicated by the arrow) and click on either "Book" or "CD" to automatically place holds on new books or audiobooks from that author. 

 

When selected, the link should become bold. To remove yourself from a reserve express, simply click on "Book" or "CD" again and the text will go back to normal. 

After a new book by your selected author is processed, anyone who is on a reserve express list will be put onto a hold list in random order. When the book is ready for you to pick up, you will be notified.

If you have questions about this service, please contact library staff.
