NEW FEATURE TO RECORD YOUR CHECKOUT HISTORY
As of November 8, you can choose to have the library catalog keep track of your checkout history. This is an Opt-In feature, so you can decide if you want to activate this ability to record and display your checkout history within your account. If you choose not to, your checkout history will not be recorded. Learn more about this feature and how to activate it here.
Want the next must-read book or new music to listen to in the car? MGPL has resources to help with that. MyMediaMall, eReadIllinois, and Hoopla are full of ebooks, audiobooks, albums, and movies you can access for free on any mobile device or computer. Learn more here.
