On March 3, hold 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
Overdrive has been updated, please contact the library at 361-758-2350 to update your password. Usernames remain the same.
Due to COVID-19 the library is closed. We are committed to our community’s safety; therefore, we will remain closed until further notice. You can access our open-access WI-FI outside of the library at any time. You may call us to renew books and use our drop box to return books. We will use this time to completely disinfect the library. Thank you for your patience and most of all stay safe during this time of uncertainty. Please continue to follow us on our social media pages for updates.
