How to Place a Hold

Patrons may place a hold on any item within the library’s collection.  If the item is currently checked out to someone else, placing a hold on that item ensures you’ll be in line to receive it. There is no charge to place a hold.  However, because our staff takes time to locate the item and place a hold for you, a 50-cent fee will be added to your card if the item is not picked up by the date indicated on the notice.  Holds may be placed at any service desk or through WYLDCat, the library’s online catalog.

1.  Go to WYLDCat, the online catalog.


2.  Click your library name (Cheyenne, Burns, Pine Bluffs or Bookmobile). Locate the item in the catalog. (If the screen says Search Results and you are looking at a list of items, click Full Details for the specific item you want.)


3.  Click Place Hold. Enter your library card number (no letters or spaces) and PIN. If you don’t know your PIN, enter WYLD. Click Request Item.

4.  The next screen will confirm the hold you have just placed. Click OK at the bottom of the screen.
