Q: I want an item that is not on the shelf at my local library. How can I get it?
If an item is checked out or located at another branch, you can place a hold and have it sent to the location of your choice.
- Place holds in the Library catalog, in person or on the phone by calling (913) 826-4600.
- We will notify you when the item is available for pickup and place it on our hold shelf for seven days.
- You may have up to 30 active holds on your library account at any given time.
If you would like to request materials not owned by Johnson County or Olathe Public Library, you can request an Interlibrary Loan (Johnson County residents only).
