Physical items (books, CDs, DVDs, etc., not eBooks or downloadable audiobooks) are due 3 weeks from the checkout date. You can find the due date for all the physical materials you have checked out with the following directions:

  1. Visit catalog.metrolibrary.org and click Log In.
  2. In the window that pops up, enter all 8 digits of your library card number and your last name and 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. The Account Summary page will display all of your checked out items and their due dates.
