How do I request a book?

If you would like to request a book in person or on the phone, all you need is your library card number and you may ask your local librarian to put in a request for you. If you would like to request a book online, simply click on the "Log in to Request" or “Request” button (if you have already logged in) and follow the instructions. A “Request” button is available on all items that you are allowed to place a request on. You will need your library card number and PIN to place a request online. To keep popular materials in circulation for all Queens Library customers, a 25-cent fee will be charged for each requested item not picked up.
