OverDrive/Sora eBooks & Audiobooks: Holds

May I place books on Hold?

Yes. 

How do I place a book on Hold?

 

If a book is currently checked out, you'll see this option to "Place hold."

 

 

 

How will I know when my Hold is ready?

 

 

1.  When you open Sora, you'll see this "ringing bell" symbol at the top right. 

2.  Click on the bell to see your Hold book.

3.  Click the green button to borrow the book.

 

 

What if I'm not ready to borrow the Hold book?

Click on "Get it later."  You can adjust your settings to always "Get it later" if you don't check it out within 3 days.
