How Do I Place a Hold?

In order to check out any items, first you have to make a hold on the item you want. There are two options for placing holds.

  1. Call the Library
  2. Use the Coastline Card Catalog website

To be clear, you DO NOT have to do both of these things. You only need to do one to successfully place a hold. Your needs may make one option preferable to you, so we’ll explain each process below.


We are here and available Monday through Friday from 10 AM until 6 PM. We love to hear from our patrons, so feel free to call us if you want someone to walk through getting a hold placed with you.


Coastline Library Network is the site you can use to access the catalogs of every library in Coos or Curry County. Through it, you can search by title, author, subject, or item type to find what you want to check out.

Once you’ve found an item you’d like, click the “place hold” button. At that point, Coastline will ask for your login information.

The Coquille Public Library website will NEVER ask for your login information. However, in order to ensure to item is going to the correct person, you will need to log into your Coastline Account on their website.

Make sure your information is correct, that you have the right item and that it’s going to the library where you’d like to pick it up, and then you’re good to go! You’ll be redirected to your account, which will show you the items you currently have checked out as well as other holds you’ve placed.


We love serving our community, and have developed procedures so we can meet the needs of all our patrons. If you have any further questions or need more help, give us a call!
