What does it mean when material is placed on “hold"?

Library material is placed on "Hold" by a patron by phone, online, or in person. This tags the item in the electronic catalog, and alerts the staff to pull the item when it is returned and hold it for the requester. With prior approval, a family member may pick up a hold for their family. The library provides patrons with "Hold Notices" by phone message and email.
