If we own copies of the item in question, there will be a "Place a Hold" button located in the record for the item in our online catalog. Once you click on the button, you will need to enter in your library card and pin number. Once you have entered that information you will have select a branch at which to pick up the item. (The computer defaults to the branch location that you signed up for your library card. If you would like to have a different branch as your default location, you can click on "My Settings" in the upper right corner of the screen and then click on "Preferences".)  Once you have selected the branch, click on the "Confirm" button. This will reserve the item for you.

If we do not own the item, you can either request that the library add the book to its collection or, if the item is not a fairly recent release, you can reuqest the item through interlibrary loan.
