Libraries are so much more than buildings full of books these days and the Southeast Steuben County Library is no exception. Now you can find music, movies and more. But that’s not all. We put technology in your hands at the library and thanks to our Cyber library we can put books, audio books, television shows, movies and so much more onto your computer or mobile device without you ever coming into the physical library. And, if you need help or want to come in for a technology one-on-one appointment email a digital literacy specialist at [email protected].
What you can do from your computer:
Learn to save your checkout history
Do you remember what you checked out last year? Do you need to find that title so you can read it again? No problem. You now have the option to save your checkout history for your personal* use.
To begin saving your check out history, log into your library account using your library card number and pin. Go to “my account” and click the “personal information” tab, then click the “preferences” tab and check the box “show my checkout history.” This will allow you to save your check out history.
How to view your saved checkout history
Log into your library account using your library card number and pin. Go to “my account” and under the “checkouts” tab scroll to the bottom and you will see, “my checkout history.” Click this tab to view your checkout history.
* It is important to note that the library does not keep records of your checkouts after the items have been returned. Library staff do not have access to your history should you choose to begin saving it for your personal use. You are the only person who can choose to save and access your history through the website.
