  1. Place your holds by using our online catalog at www.oswego.lib.il.us
  2. Our system will notify you when your hold is ready to be picked up.
  3. Call when you are in the parking lot to let us know you are here to pick up your holds.  The Montgomery Campus: 630-978-1201    Oswego Campus: 630-978-1545
  4. If you don’t have a cell phone or prefer to call from home, you may call us before leaving your house to let us know you will be on your way.
  5. It may be cold outside.  We recommend waiting in your car for 3-4 minutes  after calling before coming to the door to pick up your item.  It will take us a few minutes to locate your items and get them checked out to your account.
