How to Request or Place Holds on Library Materials


1. Go to the Slater Public Library website at


2.  Click on “Find a Book” tab at the top of the page



3.  Click on “Slater Public Library” to access our catalog



4.  If you already have an account, click on “Log In” and enter your username and password. If you can’t remember your username, we can look that up and you can reset your password. If you do not have an account learn how to do that HERE.



5.  For example, searching our catalog for “Frozen” brought up several results. When looking at the results it will tell you if the item is available now or if it is checked out. If checked out, you can still put a hold on the item and you will be next in line to receive this item.


6.  To place a hold, click on the item you would like.



7.  Now click on “Hold It”. A confirmation screen will appear next. If you want to place a hold on multiple items, you will go back to step #7 and repeat.
