Hi. Thanks for your question. The reason why you are not able to place a hold on this CD is because Northbrook Public Library is the only library who owns the CD. Northbrook will not lend their CDs to other libraries (will not send to other libraries). However if the CD is on the shelf, you can go to Northbrook and check it out at the library. But, if it is checked out, you will have to wait until it is back on the shelf.

If you do have a Niles District Library card, we can look outside the consortium to see if there is another library who can send it to Niles. Call 847-663-6640 (Audiovisual Desk) and request the CD.
