Hold Redelivery in Libby

You can now manage your holds both before and after the item becomes available.

You will receive a notification now that a held item is available instead of the item being automatically delivered. If you’re like many of us, you’re in the middle of another book and may not be aware of the new item until you’ve missed several days of reading.

So, after receiving notification that a hold is available, you can:

  1. Borrow the item within 3 days. -OR-
  2. Choose “deliver later” and pass the book to the next person in line for your self-selected period. You will receive the next available copy after your “deliver later” date. -OR-
  3. Cancel the hold.

More on delivering holds later

Don’t have time to read an available hold? Have it delivered later!  You’ll pass the title to the next person, but stay at the front of the wait list.

Go to your Holds in Libby, tap Deliver Later, choose a “deliver after” date for the hold. You can choose the number of days to delay delivery. Then you’ll see the earliest date the hold may be delivered again.
