How long do patrons have to check out an item on hold?

Holds are held to be checked out for three days from the exact time that the email was sent to the patron. OverDrive does not give an idea of when a book might be ready. Patrons can see how far down the queue they are when placing a hold (ie, a note on the detail page of the title will say # of patron(s) on waiting list); if the number is 0, they will be next, with the hold becoming available within the week.

Encourage patrons to use the wishlist feature to keep track of what they would like to read, rather than filling up their holds queue and running the risk of having a hold become available when they cannot pick it up.
