Not ready to borrow your requested eBooks and eAudio when your turn comes up? Hold redelivery to the rescue!
If you receive a notice that you have items available to check out - and you're not ready for them - you can choose to have them "redelivered" at another more convenient time.
"Redelivery" allows you to keep your place in line for a popular title until you are ready for it, while allowing other readers or listeners to take their turns.
Things to know about the new hold redelivery feature:
Hold redelivery will be available beginning the week of March 2, 2020, and will replace auto-checkout for new -and- existing holds.
After you receive notice that your OverDrive hold is ready, you have 3 days to choose 1 of these 3 options:
- Go ahead and borrow the title.
- Suspend your hold by selecting "deliver later" to a time of your choosing. You'll keep your place in line while the next person who wants the book enjoys it.
- Cancel the hold.
If you do nothing about the hold that's ready for you, the system will automatically suspend the hold one time for another 7 days as a courtesy. If you do nothing upon receiving the second notice, the system will automatically cancel your hold.
