Delivering holds later when you're not ready for them

If you're not ready to borrow a hold when it becomes available, you can have it delivered later.

Delivering a hold later keeps you at the front of the wait list, but passes the current copy to the next person in line.

How to deliver a hold later

  1. Go to Shelf.
  2. Tap holds at the top of the screen.
    Shelf screen with holds highlighted
  3. Tap Deliver Later.
  4. Use the slider to pick a "deliver after" date. After this date, you'll get a copy when someone returns it.
    Note: This could mean that you get the title a couple days or weeks after your "deliver after" date.
  5. Tap Update Hold.

Note: If you don't borrow the hold during its 3-day pickup window, it will be scheduled for later delivery automatically. Automatic rescheduling happens once per hold. If you don't act on a hold a second time, the hold will be canceled.
