"Why are there books checked out on my account that I don't have at home?"
We have changed some of our procedures for safety reasons and to streamline curbside pickup. See our Frequently Asked Questions for this and other common issues.
Placing Items on Hold
You can place items on on hold using one of the following options:
- Place available items on hold using our online catalog
- Request specific items or readers' advisory using our online request form
- Request specific items or readers' advisory by calling us at 781-834-5535 during curbside pickup hours

Delivery between libraries has resumed on a limited basis. You are now able to place holds on items from other Old Colony Libraries that are currently receiving deliveries.
We are working hard to fill all of the incoming requests. However, due to the increased demand for materials it may take us longer than usual to process your requests. If you have tried to call us and haven't been able to get through please try again in a few minutes or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are having difficulty accessing the internet or paying your internet bill, the library is here to help. Anyone with an OCLN card can call 781-834-5535, or email email@example.com to request a mobile hotspot. Hotspots circulate for 2 weeks.
