OverDrive and Libby: Hold Redelivery is Live

On March 3hold redelivery went live in the Libby and OverDrive apps. Hold redelivery replaces auto-checkout and gives you more options for your holds. Now you can select “deliver later” on an available hold if you are not ready to read it but want to stay on the wait list. You can also still suspend a hold before a title is ready to borrow.

How does hold redelivery work?

After receiving notification that a hold is available, you can:

1) Borrow the title within 3 days

2) Choose “deliver later” and pass the book to the next person in line for a self-selected period. After the “deliver later” date, you will receive the next available copy

3) Cancel the hold

If you take no action during the hold pickup window, the “deliver after seven days” option will be automatically applied as a one-time courtesy. If you do not take any action a second time, your hold will be canceled.
