    Libraries usually offer reservations to be placed for books which are on loan.

    Thanks for the help

    I changed this sentence according to your reply.
    Would you please check if it's correct?

    A: I reserved ‘Economics skill’ book last week, is it available now?

    And...

    If I want to use 'Would'... can I say like this?

    Would you help me to reserve this book for me?

    A: I reserved ‘Economics skill’ book last week, is it available now? You are not reserving, in active form it is the job of librarian. So you use the passive verb: The ‘Economics skill’ book was reserved by me last week, is it available now?

    And...

    If I want to use 'Would'... can I say like this?

    Would you help me to reserve this book for me?
    ok
