Holds on physical titles ready for pick up are kept for 1 week. After 1 week, holds are returned to the shelves or sent to the next person on the holds list. You can see which holds are available to pick up by signing in to your account at and clicking Your Name's Account at the top right of the screen. 

Holds on OverDrive titles are held only 72 hours from the time the email is sent to you notifying you the hold is available. It's recommended that you opt to Automatically borrow a title when it becomes available at the time you place the hold so that it will automatically be checked out to you.
