Placing Holds
If you have a valid library card, you can place holds on items belonging to the Flatirons Library Consortium and Prospector. You can place a hold through the library’s online catalog or by telephoning 303-441-3100. You are allowed to place 10 holds at one time, and there is no charge for this service.

You will be notified by e-mail or telephone when your materials are ready for pick up at the location you designate when you place your hold. Holds are available for pick up for 7 days. You must have the library card with which the hold was placed with you when you come to check it out.

Freezing Holds
Freezing your outstanding holds allows you to preserve your place on the waiting list whenever you do not wish to receive your holds during a particular time period. Once you unfreeze a hold, your original position in the queue is resumed.

To freeze a hold:

  1. Login to your library account.
  2. Click on the My Requested Holds button.
  3. Under the Freeze column, click the box next to each requested item to be frozen.
  4. Click the Save Changes button.

To re-activate a hold:

  1. Login to your library account.
  2. Click on the My Requested Holds button.
  3. Click the box next to each item.
  4. Click the Save Changes button.

Holds cannot be frozen on any items that have “IN-TRANSIT” or “ON HOLDSHELF” status, or belong to a Prospector library.
