Borrowing holds automatically
By default, holds are automatically borrowed and added to your Shelf once they're available. You'll receive a notification when this happens.
To turn off automatic borrowing for your holds:
- Go to > Get Some Help > Troubleshooting > Manage Hold Notices.
- Turn off the Borrow automatically setting.
- Tap Update Existing Holds (if you have any holds to update).
Once you turn off this setting, you'll need to manually borrow holds when they become available, within a certain period of time (typically 3 days). If you don't, the hold will lapse and go to the next person in line.
