    o Anyone can place a hold on an item that has been checked out. An email is sent to the person who has checked out a book notifying them that a hold has been placed on it.
    o If a hold is placed on an item that has been just checked out, the patron who has the book may retain the book until their original checkout period has passed.
    o If a hold is placed on an item that has been renewed, the patron who has the book must return it as soon as possible.
    o Any item can be turned back in before the checkout period has passed.
