STEP 1 Select Books and Materials
Patrons have two options for selecting items to checkout: placing holds in the online catalog or allowing a librarian to select books based on your needs and preferences.
Patrons who wish to select their own materials may browse the online catalog, locate the desired item(s), and use the Place Request button to place a hold. Please choose the branch where you intend to pick up your materials as the pickup location.
Patrons who prefer that a library staff member choose materials for them should complete this request form. Please provide as much information as possible about your reading preferences. Library staff will select up to 10 titles per patron from materials available at the branch designated by the patron.
STEP 2 Wait for Hold Notifications
If you selected your own materials from the online catalog, you will receive a hold notification or a phone call when your items are available. Once you receive your hold notification, use the form below or call 770-781-9840 to schedule a pickup.
If you used the request form to have a staff member select your items, we will contact you to review your selections and schedule a pickup appointment.
STEP 3 Schedule an Appointment
Please use the form below or contact the library at 770-781-9840 and follow the prompts to connect with your desired pickup location to schedule an appointment for pickup.
*Holds are also available for in-person pickup on Monday through Sunday - no appointment necessary. Hours are listed at www.forsythpl.org.
