Is an item already checked out or on the shelves at a Library clear across Johnson County? We're happy to send it to the Library location of your choice. Here’s how:
- Place a hold through the Library catalog, in person, using the app or by calling (913) 826-4600.
- You'll receive an email from us when your held item(s) is ready for pickup at your chosen Library. Your item(s) will remain on the hold shelf for seven days from the date of the email.
- Pick up your items, check them out and be on your way.
- Remember to bring the same Library card you used to place the hold, even for spouses and children.
- You can hold up to 30 items on your Library account at a time.
We know life happens. That’s why we’ve made it easy to pay fees:
Please note that though we have removed overdue fines, fees will still be assessed on lost or damaged items.
- Items overdue for more than 30 days will be considered lost and a fee will be assessed until returned.
- Accounts with balances of $50 or more for more than 30 days are assessed a $10 materials recovery fee.
But don't worry – we want to work with you and always love seeing you back at the Library.
Keep track of due dates and stay on top of your account. Feel free to call us anytime! You can also manage your account email settings to turn on automatic due date notifications.
The Library employs a service called Unique Management Services to recover fees and materials.
Your Equipment and Our Responsibility
