General Information

Borrow from Other Libraries (Interlibrary loan)

Can't find what you need in our library? We can request it from another library through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). For more information, see Interlibrary Loan policies.

Placing Holds


  • Place a hold on a checked out book through the library catalog
  • Check the status of a hold in your Library Account


  • Notification of an arrived hold is sent through your Whitworth email account
  • Hold requests expire after 30 days for books currently checked out
  • Arrived holds will only be held for seven days


  • Arrived holds can be picked up at the circulation desk 


Students, faculty, and staff can renew online through their library account, over the phone (509.777.3260), or in person at the circulation desk. Items that have hold/recall requests attached to them will not be renewed.
