How do I access 'My Account' on the library website?
To access your library card record, click on 'My Account' in the top right corner. Enter your last name and the entire library card number starting with the 420 (no spaces) and click 'Login.'
From within your account you may request items, renew items, and review your reading history.
How do I renew my library books?
To renew all items, log into 'My Account', click on 'Checked Out Titles' and the 'Renew All' button at the top. If you only wish to renew certain items, click the boxes preceding the items in the list, and click 'Renew Selected Items' at the top. If an item may not be renewed, it will say 'ON HOLD' in red next to the due date of the item. Renewal dates are from the date renewed, not the date material is due.
How do I track my reading history?
Click ‘Reading History’ on the left. Then click the blue ‘Start Recording my Reading History’ button. It will start recording from that time forward and will not include items you checked out in the past.
Can I see how much my fines are?
Yes. Click ‘Fines and Messages’ on the left. This amount must be paid in person at a Summit County Library by cash or check.
How do I request materials?
Use the ‘Search’ field at the top left to enter in the subject, title or author. From there you can narrow your results using the categories on the left. Pay attention to what type of material it is: Book, CD book, DVD, etc. Place a hold on any item within Summit County or outside of the county by clicking the blue 'Place Hold' to the right of an item listing. Choose the Summit County Library where you want to pick the item up and receive an e-mail, call or text when it arrives.
How do I see what I have on hold?
Click ‘Titles on Hold’ on the left. This will show what is ready for pickup and any materials that are still pending.
Can I receive text messages to notify me when my holds arrive or my materials are due?
Yes! Text "Signup” to “email@example.com”. You will need to wait a few minutes for it to process.
You will receive a text back asking for your Summit County Library card number. Enter the whole number on the back starting with the 4 with no spaces and then again wait for a response.
You are now all signed up and will receive reminder texts when items you place on hold are ready for pick up or when materials you have checked out are coming due.
Text 'MyBooks' to see the status of all your library items.
Text 'Stop' if you no longer want to receive text message notifications.
