Can I request a book that is checked out?

Holds may be placed on books that are currently not available. Books may only be renewed once if a hold has been placed on it. Holds can be placed in person, by phone (208-562-3115), via email, or online by using the CWI Library catalog. Holds placed via email should be sent to library@cwidaho.cc and should include the following information:

  • Patron's full name
  • CWI ID number
  • Contact information where patron can be reached when item is ready
  • Title and author of the item to be placed on hold

Holds may be placed on videos or items in the Reserve Collection by faculty or staff of the college, or a student when needed for a class presentation.
