Holds Pickups at Alloway Library
Although public access to our collections is currently closed, Alloway Library has a Contactless Holds Pick-Up Service to allow library users to get print books and other media from our collection - often on the same day that you make a request.
It starts with Library One Search or the Classic Catalogue and the barcode on your TWU ID card. Video tutorial on placing a hold.
  1. Find the material you want and use the Place Hold link.
    • You can place up to 24 holds at a time.
    • Holds can be placed on quarantined material, but may not be available for up to 96 hours.
  2. Library staff will pull the material, check it out to your account, print a receipt and put everything in a plastic bag.
  3. You will get an email to tell you that the material is ready for pick up. The Library will be operating on a reduced schedule, visit Library Hours for operating times.
  4. Come to Borrower Services to pick up your material. You will need to show your ID.
  5. Check your receipt to make sure that it is correct.
  6. Enjoy your reading!
For the health and safety of all, please wear a mask when you pick up material.
