In Overdrive/Libby, hold redelivery has replaced auto-checkout for all new and existing holds. For each digital hold you will receive a notification when it becomes available for checkout, and then you can take one of the following options:

  1. Borrow the title within 3 days
  2. 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 you set is over, you will be able to borrow the book when the next copy is available.
  3. Cancel the hold.

If you take no action, the 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.
