NEW FEATURE - HOLD REDELIVERY

How does it 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.
