Account Holds

[Back to Top]

Students who have 1 or more long overdue items receive an account hold. This hold blocks all Library borrowing as well as the receipt of final grades and transcripts.

A Library hold will not block registering for classes.

To remove a hold, all items must be returned and fees paid to the Pay Station. Only Library staff can determine the correct amount owed to clear your account, so check with the Circulation desk before making any payments to the Pay Station. Once a payment has been made, bring your receipt to the Circulation desk to remove the hold; this may take up to 24 business hours.


Interlibrary Loan

[Back to Top]

If our library does not have what you need, we may be able to borrow it via interlibrary loan for your use. Please note that loaned books can take as long as 2 weeks to arrive. Articles usually arrive within a few days.

Contact Reference Services to request an interlibrary loan:

  • Texas Township Library: 488-4380
  • Arcadia Commons Library: 373-7848

Or fill out the Interlibrary Loan form and send it to crobbins@kvcc.edu

Contact Chris Robbins at 488-4331 for the status of a pending interlibrary loan.
