Toronto Public Library Homepage

When the library receives new DVDs, they appear on these lists:

The lists are updated daily and include all DVDs the library has received in the last 6 months.

These lists include both holdable DVDs that you can reserve through the website and non-holdable DVDs that can't be reserved.

Non-holdable DVDs are usually the most popular feature movies. They can't be placed on hold for the first 6 months after the library receives them.

If a DVD doesn't have a green "Place Hold" button, click the title of the DVD to see which locations have copies available.

How and when do non-holdable DVDs become available for holds?

On the 15th of every month, DVDs scheduled to become holdable will automatically have their status changed.

That day (or the first business day thereafter, if the 15th is on a weekend or holiday), the following lists are updated manually on the website to show the DVDs that have just become holdable:

If you want to know when a DVD will become available for placing holds, look for the "Holdable starting..." date on the listing in the website.
