Holds Limit Increasing from Five to Seven

Beginning on Sunday, August 5, 2018, the Austin Public Library will increase the hold limit per account from five to seven items. Circulating items can have holds placed on them and can be sent to a specified Austin Public Library location for pickup.

There will be a seven hold limit on a valid Austin Public Library card at one time. Holds can be placed by logging into My Account using the Library Card number and the associated PIN/PASSWORD. If the account the hold is placed on has a valid email address, an email notification will be sent when the item is available at the specified pickup location.
