Suspending a hold

You can suspend a hold before it's ready for you to borrow.

Suspending a hold lets you move up a title's wait list without the title becoming available for you. If you reach #1 in line, you'll be in the first position to get the book once your suspension ends.

You may want to suspend a hold if you have too little time to read or too many books in progress.

To suspend all your holds:

  1. Go to Shelf Shelf, in the navigation footer > Actions > Suspend All Holds.
  2. Use the slider to choose how long you'd like to suspend your holds.
    Tip: When you drag the slider to the right edge, tap the underlined 180 days for more options.
  3. Tap Update Holds.

To suspend a single hold:

  1. Tap Shelf Shelf, in the navigation footer.
  2. Tap holds at the top of the screen.
