It is ok to cancel a hold!
You can cancel your holds any time or freeze them for a more suitable time to pick them up.
Reserved books and other materials sometimes arrive at the library when you are too busy to pick them up. Did you know that you can cancel your requests any time? You may do so online at Helmet.fi, by using the Taskukirjasto app, or at the library.
You can also freeze your holds for a certain period, e.g. while you are on vacation and unfreeze them when you want.
