Placing a hold
Place a hold on an item to have it delivered to your local library for pick up.
- Place up to 20 physical and 20 digital holds.
- Holds can be canceled at any time.
- Have your holds delivered to you with Books by Mail.
Pausing a hold
Pause your holds on My MCL, and on OverDrive or the Libby app.
Pausing holds is a great way to get items in order, like a book or TV series. You can also choose when holds come in, so you get items when you have time to use them.
A paused hold will continue to move up the waiting list, but will not fill until you are ready.
