Q. How do you update the cancel by date on a book hold?
Unfortunately our system does not allow patrons to alter the "cancel if not filled by" date on holds that are already in your holds queue. To adjust that date, you'll need to call or visit any Alameda County Library for assistance.
When placing your holds you are not required to enter a date for cancellation. If you leave that space blank the system will automatically assign a 1-year cancellation date.
