Yes, you can have someone else pick up your hold.  You have two choices for doing so:

  • Give your library card or card number to the person who will be checking out your hold, and the item will be checked out on your library account.  Or,
  • Your friend, neighbor, or relative can check out the item on hold with his or her own card, but they must alert the circulation staff to change the account, or the system will think you did not pick up the hold.
