From a self-check machine at the library:

Our self-check machines only automatically print a list of what you checked out during that session. To print a receipt with all items you have currently checked out, after signing in to your account, but before checking out any items, tap the Receipt button. A receipt will print out that shows all items currently checked out to your account.

From home or from a public computer:

To print a list of your current checkouts, first sign into the catalog:

  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. After you have logged in, click on your name at the top right of the screen.

Select Checked Out Titles. At the bottom of the screen, click Export to CSV. A .csv file will download and you can then open the file, format it, and print it.

NOTE: When you open the file, you may notice that the title, author, or some other fields are cut off because the cells are too small. To make the cells large enough to read the full text in them, in Microsoft Excel, click on the letter at the top of the column you want to adjust the size of. For example, in the example below, if you want to view the full titles you can click on the letter "B":

Move your mouse to the right side of the column until it turns into an icon that looks like a vertical line with two arrows:

Click and drag the mouse to the right to expand the column until you can view the full titles in that column.
