How to borrow an available hold
If you've turned off automatic checkouts for your holds, you'll receive a notification email when a hold is available to borrow.
Note: Available holds expire if they aren't borrowed within the time period listed in your notification email.
To borrow the title:
- Go to your Holds page on your library's OverDrive website or in the OverDrive app.
You'll need to be signed into the site to get to this page.
- Select Borrow next to the title.
- From there, you can choose a lending period (if available) and a reading format for your title.
If you received a notification email but don't see your hold, visit this article for more help.
