Q. How do I know when my eBook / eAudiobook is ready to be checked out? How long do I have to check out my hold?


When the eBook / eAudiobook that you have put on hold is ready to be picked up, you will be notified via email.

In Overdrive, you have 48 hours from the time that the message was sent to you. Please keep in mind that the message time reflects Eastern Standard Time. You can also set Overdrive holds to be automatically checked out to you. If you place the hold through the Overdrive catalog, or Overdrive app, just check the box for Automatically borrow this title when it becomes available. If you placed the hold through the catalog, log in to your Overdrive account, and visit the Holds page. Next to the hold, select the Edit button by Auto checkout, and change it to On.

For CloudLibrary, you also have 48 hours from the time the message was sent to you. RBdigital holds will automatically check out when they become available.
