New Account Option: My Reading History

Library staff members are often asked if we can give someone a list of the books they have checked out in the past. Our answer has always been, "No." The library takes seriously the privacy of your library records so we do not maintain a list of what you borrow after you return it. "My Reading History" is a new feature which allows you to track items you borrow. Some patrons have asked for this service as a means of recalling a book or author they liked or for keeping a list of what they have already read. Participation in the feature is entirely voluntary. You may start or stop using it, as well as delete any or all entries in "My Reading History”, at any time. If you choose to start using "My Reading History", you agree to allow our automated system to store this data.

To enable “My Reading History” go to My Library Account, choose My Reading History, and then choose “Start Saving My Reading History”. This begins the collection of titles you borrow from the Rod Library.
