How do I place a hold on an Overdrive downloadable book?
Please see Overdrive's guide on placing a hold. You will be notified that your hold is ready with a notification sent to your email. Overdrive will email you instructions for checking the item out. The item will be held for you for 3 days after the notice is emailed. You can have 7 holds per card.
Please note that the notification will be sent to the email address you registered with OverDrive, not the email address on your library account. Holds must be picked up within 72 hours.
You can also manage your Overdrive checkouts and holds using the catalog. You can check if the title is available for checkout, place a hold on it, or download it directly. Click "Request this download". You can see your Overdrive checkouts and holds in MYAPL along with your other items. Read the blog on the new features.
