How do I?

Save my reading history?

Saving your reading history is a great way to keep track of the books you’ve checked out by allowing the catalog to store your checkout history. To enable this:

– Visit the library catalog and log in with your library card number and PIN.

– From your account, select “Reading History” on the left hand side of the screen.

– Click the “Opt In” box on the Reading History screen.

And you’re all set! If you would like to opt out of saving your reading history at any time, follow these steps and select “Opt Out” from the Reading History screen.

– Having trouble? Check out this video made by WVLS or ask a librarian for help.
