Can the library pull a book from the shelf for me and set it aside for me to pick up?

Yes, we'd be happy to pull books from our collection for you. You can do this by placing a hold on an item in the library catalog.

  • First, login to your library account, contact us if you have trouble logging in
  • Do a search for the book you want to request
  • Place a hold on the item using the hold button on the right hand side of the screen
  • Check your MCLA email  - that's how we'll communicate with you about your item

This video explains the process in more detail.
