Request items


Are the books and movies you want checked out?  Don’t have time to leisurely browse the shelves?  Great news!  You can request items directly through the online catalog!

Simply search for an item you want, click the “Place Hold” button, and enter your library card # and PIN. We’ll grab the first available copy, deliver it to the PCPL location of your choice, and notify you when it is ready.

You can request any circulating item from the PCPL collection, as well as items from partner libraries like the Isothermal Community College Library and the Rutherford County Public Library.
