To protect the privacy of our customers, the Metropolitan Library does not maintain a history of checked out items. However, you can opt to keep a record of your checkout history of physical (i.e. not digital) titles from this point forward:

  1. Visit metrolibrary.org and click My Account at the top.
  2. In the window that pops up, enter all the digits of your library card number. Your password or PIN is your full last name. Click Log In.
    • If you have an ECARD number, enter that word along with the trailing digits with no spaces between them. For example: ecard1234567
    • If your card number has a lowercase letter "c" at the end, do not include it when you enter your card number.
  3. On the Account Summary page and click the Opt-In & Notifications link.
  4. Check the box next to Save my loan history.

You can access your Loan History on the Account Activity tab.

OverDrive digital titles are added to your history each time a title is borrowed. You will see an empty history until you borrow a title, or manually add it. You can add titles manually by clicking on the context menu Menuand selecting Add to History or from the title details page by clicking Add to History
