How long does it take a book to arrive at my branch once I place it on hold?
The time it takes for a book to arrive at your branch for pickup depends on a variety of factors.
If you requested an item that is On Shelf at a Sarasota County library, it will usually arrive at your selected branch in 2-3 days.
If you requested an item that is currently checked out, the time it takes to get to you depends on when copies are returned and if other users have requested it before you. You may check the number of copies and if other users are waiting for them through our online catalog.
If you requested an item that is On Order, that means that the item has been ordered by the library but has not yet arrived. In some cases, the item may have not been published yet but reserves can still be placed.
