Do you sometimes pick a book off the shelf and wonder if you've read it before? You can keep a tally of the books and authors you've read, movies you've watched, or artists you've listened to in your library account. Here's how:

  1. Log into your library account (My Account).
  2. On your My Account page, click on 'Contact Information and Checkout History Preferences'.
  3. Below 'Do you want to keep a list of items you've previously checked out?' is the option to maintain your checkout history. Check the box and then click 'OK' on the privacy notice popup*, and then click the 'Submit Change Request' button (see image below).

The saving of your checkout history only starts when you turn it on. Nothing before that point in time displays in the checkout history. Please note that items disappear from your checkout history after 3 years or 2,000 items, whichever comes first.

  1. Now, each time you check out a book, CD, DVD, or another item, it will be added to your checkout history. To view your checkout history, log in to your account. Click the 'Checkout History' link in your My Account options either in the upper right corner of any page or in the left sidebar on any My Account page.
  2. If you no longer want to maintain a checkout history, go to 'Contact Information and Checkout History Preferences'. Click on the box for 'Maintain checkout history' to remove the checkmark, then click the 'Submit Change Request' button.

*Note: Your checkout history is associated with personal data in your patron account. We are committed to protecting your privacy. Except when compelled by a court order, we will not share any of your patron account information.
