My Reading History allows you to save a list of everything that you check out from the library. Your reading history is available from your library account.

The system will start saving a list of titles beginning with any titles that you check out AFTER you click on "Opt In". Anything that you checked out before you started saving your history will NOT be on the list. If you Renew a book that was checked out prior to opting in, it will NOT be added it to your reading history.

You can delete some or all of the titles on your list whenever you want. Click on "Opt Out" after you have turned on the feature to stop saving titles at any time. However, you must delete all of the titles from your reading history before you can opt out of saving your history.
