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 and click My Account at the top.
  2. In the window that pops up, enter all 8 digits of your library card number (if your card number has less than 8 digits, add enough zeros to the front of your number until it is 8 digits long) or if your card number starts with ECARD, enter that word along with the trailing digits and your full last name (or sign in with your EZ Username and Password), and click Log In.
  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
