Holds Pick-up & Book Return FAQs

Place holds on library materials through the Library’s Catalog, the Minuteman Mobile App, or you can phone library staff at 781-326-7562. 

Are you looking for some reading suggestions? We want to help get great books into your hands this via our new ReadNEXT: Adult Book Bundles

Don't know what to pick for kids and teens? Check out the librarian selected Children's & Teen's Book Bundles options. Just tell us age/grade of readers and select book bundles based on topic and genre! You can always email the kids department directly for suggestions at wwdchildrens@gmail.com or call 781-320-1042 to speak to a Children's or Teen's Librarian. 

While the number of holds is not limited, if you can limit your holds to one library card per family, that would aid us in streamlining the holds process and will also help ensure the health and safety of library staff and customers.

You will be notified when your items are ready either through email, text or a phone call depending on your library account setup.
