No, there is a first come, first serve policy regarding library materials. Only items on order or currently checked out can be placed on hold. When the item is available, it will be placed on the hold shelf and you will be notified by email that the item is ready. The item remains on the hold shelf for one week. If you place a hold on a checked out item, the patron who currently has it checked out will not be able to renew the item, but will need to return the item so that it can go to the first person on the wait list.
