  2. In the Holds section, you can see All holds or click Digital to see only your OverDrive holds.

    On Hold. "1 Digital" is circled.


If you don't see a hold... 

  • The default setting is to automatically check out an item once it's available. If you got an email saying the title is ready, look for it in OverDrive Loans
  • If you have automatic hold checkout disabled, you'll get a hold notification email. You have 72 hours to borrow the item before it expires. If this time has elapsed, you will need to place the hold again.
  • Confirm that you are signed in under your account and not someone else's.
  • If you recently replaced your Library Card, OverDrive staff need to move your holds to your new account number.
