On March 3hold redelivery went live in Libby and the OverDrive app. Hold redelivery replaces auto-checkout and gives users more options for their holds. Users can now select “deliver later” on an available hold if they’re not ready to read it but want to stay on the wait list. Users can still suspend a hold before a title is ready to borrow as well.

This means users can now manage their holds both before and after they become available. By enabling users to pass books they aren’t ready to read on to the next person in line, hold redelivery helps your library connect more readers to the right book at the right time.

 

How does hold redelivery work?

After receiving notification that a hold is available, users 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, the user will receive the next available copy.

3) Cancel the hold.

If the user takes no action during the hold pickup window, the “deliver after seven days” option will be automatically applied as a one-time courtesy. If the user takes no action a second time, their hold will be canceled

Library Newspaper Update Week

 

This week we invite everyone to come to the library to check out our featured author, Celeste Ng. Celeste Ng is an American author of Chinese descent. She has published three standalone novels. Ng debut novel Everything I Never Told you took her six years to write, but once it was published it quickly became a New York Times bestseller. The author’s novels are centered around stories that tackle issues of race and family. Ng uses Shaker Heights, a diverse community she grew up in, for inspiration. Celeste Ng latest novel, Our Missing Hearts, is a Reese Witherspoon’s Book Club October ’22 Pick. The book is about a mother’s unbreakable love for a son she left behind when he was only nine. The son has grown up not wanting to know his mother or what happened to her, but then he receives a mysterious letter containing only a strange drawing. The letter starts him on a quest to find her.
