If you have requested an item, but you want to delay its pick-up date, you can suspend/freeze the hold on that item, keeping your place in line. For example, if you are going on vacation and don’t want to miss getting your requested items, you can suspend/freeze the hold before you leave and set a date for the hold to resume/unfreeze after your return.
To freeze an item:
Your items will unfreeze on the date you set. If you would like to unfreeze an item earlier:
Note that suspending your hold keeps your place in line. If you suspend holds for an extended period of time and then resume/unfreeze them all at once, you are likely to receive all of those items at the same time.
