Your Library Account...
...has some great features! Have you discovered them yet?


Check out these selected features:

READING HISTORY. Remember that really good book you checked out last year but can’t remember either the author or title? Now you can simply search through your Reading History to jog your memory. To enable Reading History click on the green tab that says My Library Account at the top of the JCPL home page, enter your last name and library card number and click Submit. Click on Reading History. Once you “enable” it, from now on everything you check out will show up in a list of titles (Prospector and Inter-Library Loan items are not included but may be listed as “Information unavailable”).

MY LISTS. This feature allows you to create lists of books, DVDs, music CDs, etc. on topics that you yourself create. When you come across a title that interests you but you’re not ready to check out, click on Add to My Lists at the top of the page. This brings up Save Records to a List, and from the drop-down menu, choose Create a New List, name it and add a description if you’d like. This is a wonderful way to create personalized bibliographies that you can go back to time and again. Your lists can be edited or deleted at any time.

MY REVIEWS. This feature shows any titles that you have reviewed on our catalog. Did you really enjoy The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society? Why not let others know? Find a title that you’d like to review and below the catalog entry you will see Add a Review. If you aren’t already logged in, it will prompt you to do so and the guidelines and instructions pop-up box will come up. Other reader ratings and reviews will show up here, also, from the websites Good Reads and NoveList. A great way to find new reading material!
