  • You are once again able to place GFJ items on hold by signing into your account online. Please be aware that this may not always reflect the most up-to-date information. Additionally, it will take longer for us to receive your hold request. If you place a hold online, please wait for us to call you to let you know your items are ready before coming to pick them up curbside. Please note that it is currently faster to get your items that we have available at GFJ by calling or texting the library.Thank you for your patience!
