Increased Holds Limit
Due to COVID-19, we are temporarily increasing the number of holds that Marion County Public Library card holders can place. MCPLS card holders will now be able to place up to 20 items on hold at a time, to help accommodate our curbside pick up program. Please let your branch know if you need assistance placing a hold.
