How do I make a request?
Come in or call to the Information/Reference Desk at either branch. With the information you provide, a librarian makes sure that the exact item you want is able to be requested and fills out a request form.

Your account shows that the request has been placed and when it is ready for pickup. We urge Watsonville Public Library patrons to pick up the material as soon as possible and begin using the material immediately. Access your library account.
