Library Holds – A Popular Service

June 22, 2010 at 8:55 am | Posted in Blueskin Bay, Bookbus, City Library, Library_News, Mosgiel, Port Chalmers, Waikouaiti | Leave a comment

When an item is unavailable due to being on loan, or at another of our network of Libraries, a customer can place a ‘hold’ on it.

Placing a hold is a popular service for Library customers, and from 1 July 2010 it will cost $1.00 to place an item on hold.

This is the first increase since 2001 and brings the Library into line with other New Zealand metropolitan libraries, where holds charges vary from between $1.00 and $2.00 per item.

The holds charge will apply only to adults, ensuring children and young people under the age of 18 continue to have free access to this important service.

Bernie Hawke, Library Services Manager, comments

“The reason holds are popular is because they represent such good value for money. While this is a significant increase, it is still only a small percentage of the costs involved in providing the service. I’m sure library customers will acknowledge this, along with the saving in time and effort for them when they place a hold.”
