When you take a vacation, make sure your holds do too!

If the book you want to read on the beach hasn’t come in and it’s time to catch your plane, Suspend Your Hold! 
If you have 3 books you’re reading and don’t need another right now, Suspend Your Hold! 

What does this mean, you ask? 
It means you can deactivate your hold request until a future date. Here’s how:

1)  Log in to your online library account from our website using your username and password.  (Haven't set this up yet? Send us an email and we'll get you started!)
2)  Click on the HOLDS tab.
3)  Make sure the box is check marked next to the item you wish to suspend. On the left side of the screen, click on the arrow to the right of Actions for Selected Holds. A drop down menu will appear; choose Suspend, then click GO.

4)  Click on the Edit button to the right of the suspended item. You will see that the hold is suspended and you can choose the date to reactivate it.  Unless a date is chosen, the hold will be suspended indefinitely.  When finished, click SUBMIT.

Now, you're set for vacation and you won't miss that book you've been waiting to read!
