eBook, eAudiobook Holds

Our eBook and eAudiobook service, Overdrive, is changing their holds system to be more responsive. Members will have more flexibility and control over their holds, and items will circulate more quickly.

Starting the week of March 2, holds through Overdrive (including the Overdrive and Libby mobile apps) will no longer automatically be checked out. When a hold becomes available, members will have 3 days to check the item out, or you can choose to suspend the hold if you're not quite ready for it.

If the item is not checked out within the 3 day period, the hold is suspended for 1 week. Holds that are suspended maintain their position in line (i.e. you will stay at position 1).

If you have any questions, or would like to see a demonstration of the Overdrive service or Libby mobile app, please contact Member Services at 905-623-7322 x2722, info@clarington-library.on.ca, or drop in to any branch.

The new temporary entrance for the Bowmanville Branch is now in place, and the main doors are in the process of being removed. An accessible automatic door opener has been installed for the temporary entrance.

During the replacement of the main entrance, the accessibility lift in the shared Library and Municipal Administration Centre (MAC) lobby will be unavailable until approximately late January 2020. An exterior accessible ramp is available for the MAC on the north side of the building on Church Street.

There will be construction noise and occasional service interruptions related to this project. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
