Your Reading History

Your reading history is a list of items you have checked out since the reading history began. (The library may limit the length of the history.) You can stop the history and clear it from your library account and the system, and start a new reading history at any time. The library may also allow you to remove individual items from your reading history.

Important:
Your reading history is associated with your library account. If you have concerns about your privacy, contact the library for specific information about the library’s privacy policies.
