Bloomfield Township residents and employees are eligible to place holds.
Go to the library catalog and locate the specific record for the item you want held. Click on the "request" button, then enter your name and the barcode from your library card.
The library catalog will place the hold immediately if the item is eligible for holds. The catalog will give you a message if the item cannot be held.
If you plan to place holds on several items, sign on to your account and then click on "search the catalog." When you locate the items you want held, click on "request," and the system will remember your name and barcode number so you won't have to type it over and over again. Be sure to click on the "Log Out" button when you are finished.
Items that can NOT be held
Reference materials, rental books, rental DVDs, and current issue magazines.
Please include the library when retracing your steps for lost treasures. The lost and found is located behind the Circulation desk and is cleared out every two to three weeks depending on the space available on our lost and found shelves.
Any lost and found items that have names and/or telephone numbers on them will be investigated in hopes of reuniting the item with their owner.
Books and other material returned in the drop boxes without any identification on them may be considered donations and will be turned over to the Friends of the Library.
If you think you may have lost a treasure at the Library, please contact us at 248-642-5800 and ask for the Circulation Department.
