Request A Book

Placing a HOLD on material allows you to request material in advance. Most circulating materials can be placed on HOLD. Items not owned by Westerly Library and Wilcox Park will be sent from other Ocean State Libraries network members upon request and availability.

Some materials may have a waiting list, so your patience is appreciated!

To place HOLDS online

  • Perform search (title, author, series, keyword) to find the item you are interested in borrowing.
  • Select the item you are interested in by clicking the Request button.
  • Type in your library card number with no spacing (14 digit number on the back of your card).
  • Make sure you choose the desired pickup library location! (Westerly is near the very end of the list.)
