My Account

There are special features of our online catalog that allow you to configure your account online. This software feature called  "My Account"  allows you to do the following:
  • change or add your email address -- this allows you to receive email messages from the library about:
    • materials are available that you have placed on hold
    • materials are overdue and need to be returned or renewed
    • courtesy reminders before your books are due
  • allows you to enable "My Reading History" which keeps a record of the books you have checked out
  • place multiple holds without re-authenticating your library card each time
  • check your record for overdue books
  • renew books that are checked out to you
  • look at your fines (and have opportunity to pay online)
  • save searches to do again at some future date
