How to freeze holds

You can freeze a hold if you don't have time to read the book right now. You'll keep moving up the wait list while it's frozen. If you reach #1 on the wait list, you'll be first in line to get the book once it's unfrozen.

To freeze all your holds:

  1. Click or tap menu.
  2. Select Hold settings.
  3. Select Active next to "Hold state."
  4. Choose how long you want to freeze your holds, then select Update all holds.

To freeze just one hold:

  1. Go to shelf.
  2. Select Holds.
  3. Select Options.
  4. Select Edit hold.
  5. Select Active next to "Hold state."
  6. Choose how long you want to freeze the hold, then select Save changes.
