Library2Go Hold Redelivery

On March 2, Library2Go will be implementing a new hold system called hold redelivery. This system will give you more flexibility to manage your holds and allow you to suspend a hold even after it’s made available, while maintaining your place on the wait list.

How will it work?

Libby notifications will alert you when your holds become available. Libby will also add a “Notifications” section to the OverDrive website and app. After receiving notification that a hold is available, you can:

  • Borrow the title within 3 days.
  • Suspend the hold by selecting “deliver later.” This option passes the book to the next person in line while maintaining your place on the wait list. After the suspension period (set by you), you will be able to borrow the book when the next copy is available.
  • Cancel the hold.

If you take no action, your hold will automatically be suspended as a one-time courtesy for 7 days. If no action is taken a second time, the hold will be cancelled automatically.
