Library Features: What's New @ The Library

New OverDrive Update

New OverDrive Update

Posted March 04, 2020

Do you use the Libby app from OverDrive to get eBooks from EBPL? You might be interested in this new feature.

OverDrive has just added a new feature to our Libby app called hold redelivery. With this feature, it gives you more control than ever before over your eBook hold requests.

Once your eBook hold becomes available, you will be able to choose from the following options: 

  • Borrow the title within the 3-day pickup period
  • Cancel the hold
  • Choose the “Deliver Later” option

If you take no action, the hold will automatically be suspended for 7 days and the book will be passed on to the next person on the wait list. After the 7-day suspension period, you will have another chance to borrow the book when the next copy becomes available. If no action is taken a second time, the hold will be cancelled automatically. You must manually check out the material, even after they have selected to have it delivered later.  If they do not manually borrow the title the hold will be cancelled.  There is no auto-delivery in any form.
