Question

How Do I Freeze My Hold?

Answer

Ever had your book or movie arrive at the library while you were away, then lose your place in line? With our new feature, you can "freeze" your hold temporarily. We'll just skip over your name for that item until you "unfreeze" it.

HERE'S HOW:

  1. Sign in to your account at cadl.org
  2. Click on your holds list
  3. Find the FREEZE column at the end of every item on your list.
  4. Click the checkbox for items you want to freeze temporarily.
  5. Click the Save Changes button.
  6. Click "yes" when asked to confirm the freeze.
  7. Holds you've frozen will now appear in gray.
  8. To unfreeze them, just follow the same steps and uncheck the FREEZE box.

Please note: You can only freeze holds when you are on a waiting list. If there is no waiting or the hold is "in transit" or ready to pick up, you won't be able to freeze it. You also cannot freeze MeLCat requests.
