Check out history is set "off" by default on all accounts.  If you would like the library to keep track of your check out history, you can ask a Circulation staff member to change this setting, while presenting your card at a Circulation Desk. 

Once check out history is turned "on," you'll be able to view your check out history from that moment forward.  Previous check outs from before you elected to turn check out history "on"  will not have been saved and are not available to be viewed.   In order to view your check out history once it has been turned on, log into your account through our homepage and click the link "My Check out History."

For ebooks and e-audiobooks, Overdrive does not track previous check outs, only current check outs..  There is no way for us to recover or track your check out history from Overdrive.

  1. The above response concerning the impending rollout of the ability to look at your checkout history is over a year old now. Is that feature functionality available yet?

  2. It is! Only within the OverDrive app though and OverDrive does NOT keep a log of it on their servers. Meaning, if you clear your history on your particular device then it is not retrievable.

    If your a big reader like many of us, I would suggest using something like which is a great site to keep all your books that you've read and you can create virtual shelves to organize your books. If you find yourself on their friend us! (
