    Placing Holds

    Nease Library is a part of the Old Colony Library Network (OCLN), which means we share books, CDs, and DVDs with 27 other libraries on the south shore. While most of these are public libraries, they have resources in areas that we may not and also carry popular titles. To search a topic in ALL libraries, simply select "all libraries" from the drop down menu at the left of the page after you view your search results. Clicking on the "place hold" button  allows you to place a hold on that item, which means it will be sent to Nease Library for you to pick up within a matter of days.
