Reserving Materials

You can place reserves on all circulating Fort Worth Library materials. We’ll notify you by telephone or e-mail when the item is available at your specified pick-up location. If we cannot reach you by phone or e-mail, we’ll send a paper notice.

To place a reserve yourself, simply find your title in the online catalog and click the Request Item button. Be sure to indicate the pick-up library. Of course, staff is always happy to place reserves for you in person or by telephone. Either way, you’ll need your library barcode number and PIN. We’ll hold the next available copy for you for 14 days at your preferred pick-up location.

If you need to change the pick-up location, please call any Fort Worth Library. Staff will be happy to assist you.

If you want to see what you have on reserve or cancel a reserve, go to My Account.

If you’d like to sign up for e-mail notifications, please contact any Fort Worth library—and don’t forget to update your e-mail address in My Account if your address changes!
