Will the books that are currently being held continue to be held for me?

Hi there. Available holds will not expire, and patrons will be able to pick them up when PPLD reopens. Places in hold queues will not change. Interlibrary loans are temporarily suspended, and requests will be put in a queue.

Hello, I am wondering if there is a way to sign up for a library card seems how all physical locations are closed?
