How to Cancel Holds in NEWCat

If you no longer need an item you placed on hold, follow these procedures to cancel the hold.

  1. First, enter the Library Catalog.
    From outside the library you will need to enter your library card number and the first four letters of your last name on the Welcome Screen.

  2. Click on My Library Account (on the lower left side of the screen).

  3. Enter your library card number (with no spaces) and the first four letters of your last name. (If your last name is shorter than 4 letters, or has an apostrophe, see a staff member at your local library.)

  4. Click on Next >.

  5. From the Patron Records screen, click on the Holds List button.

  6. Click on the box next to the item(s) you wish to cancel.

  7. Click on Cancel Selected Holds.

  8. Click on Cancel All Holds ONLY if you want all your holds canceled.

  9. The Cancel Hold Complete screen will indicate if the operation has been successful.

  10. Click on the Return to Search button when you are finished checking your account. The patron account window will close.
