Answer

When a hold becomes available you will receive an email from LIBAccountServices@fairfaxcounty.gov. If the title is not borrowed within 96 hours from the time of the email, the hold on this title will expire.

Computer, Kindle eReader, or Nook eReader:

On your computer or laptop, visit the Fairfax County Public Library website using the link in the email or using this link.

If not signed in, enter your library card number and password.  From your Account’s Holds menu, you can borrow and download the title.

iPad, Kindle Fire, Nook HD or other tablet:

When on your device, visit the Fairfax County Public Library website using the link in the email or using this linkNote: It is best to access the link in the email directly from your device rather than your computer.

If not signed in, enter your library card number and password.  From your Account’s Holds menu, you can borrow and download the title.
