We love the Libby app here at the Lackawanna County Library System because of how easy it makes it to check-out and download ebooks and audiobooks using your library card. If you’re not already using it, download it now to get reading!
Coming soon in 2020 is a new feature that enables users to suspend a hold even after it becomes available. If you place a hold and later, when you receive the notification that it’s available, decide you simply don’t have time to read it at that point in time, you will have the option to suspend the hold. This means that you won’t lose your place in line; the item will be passed to the next person and after the suspension period (that you get to set!), you will receive the next available item.
This option is always available when checking out physical materials at any of the libraries in the county, so we are so pleased it will be an option soon on Libby. Stay tuned for more information on that feature rolling out in 2020.
