Milwaukee Public Library Reduces Hold Options

Due to budget shortfalls, the Milwaukee Public Library has reluctantly changed their policy regarding holds:

Effective January 2, 2008, most media items can no longer be reserved and held for pick-up.

This includes feature films and TV programs as well as music CDs. Educational and children’s CDs, however, can still be placed on hold. Other items such as books, audio books, and CD-ROMs will continue to be holdable as well.
In addition, the maximum number of all items that may be requested at any one time is now 20 per library card holder, down from 40.
See the FAQ on Policy Change Affecting Media Holds Requests for more information.
