Never Miss a New Book Again


About the service

Rapid Reserves is a new service offered by the Iredell County Public Library that gives patrons the chance to reserve books by their favorite high profile authors on an ongoing basis. By signing up for this service, you will automatically be placed on hold for the newest books by each of your chosen authors as soon as they are added to our catalog. 

If at any time you would like to cancel this service, please contact Michele at and she can assist you.

How can I sign up?

To begin having books automatically placed on hold for you, simply click the Rapid Reserves banner at the top of the page to be taken directly to the sign up form. Enter your information and library card number, and check the boxes of all authors you'd like to begin being placed on hold for.

This service is for adult fiction print items only, and will only place you on hold for new books as they're released. To be placed on hold for older books by an author, call the library directly at 704-878-3090, or request them directly through your online library account.
