Placing a Request
Once you have found the book, you may place a request for it by clicking on the request bar. Enter your 14-digit barcode number from your library card and your 4-digit pin number (it's the last four digits of your phone number when registered). Then, confirm your request. We will email or call you to let you know when the book is delivered to the Plattsburgh Public Library.
Borrowing from Other Libraries
If the item you want to borrow is not available at Plattsburgh Public Library, you can request it from another library and it will be delivered as soon as it is available. Patron requests and renewals may delay delivery of items. If the item is not in the catalog, fill out a Book Request slip at the Circulation desk and we will check libraries outside of our system catalog or consider purchasing the item for our collection.
