Add a title to your list

When you search the library catalog for books, movies, or music, two buttons appear after each title in your search results:

Add to my list and Request Item

Click the Add to my list button to save a title into a wish list.

To see your list once you’ve started adding items to it, click the link at the top right of the catalog:
Icon My List

Save your list for later

We suggest you log in (My Account) when saving titles into lists. Your wish list will only be saved for later if you log in. Otherwise it will be cleared out when you leave the catalog or close your web browser.

Manage your list

Saved titles always go into a list named My List. You can save up to 30 titles on a wish list.

If My List gets full, you can make room by moving some wish list items onto another list. You can have up to 10 lists.

To put a book into a different list, click the box to the left of its title, then click the Move To box near the top right of the list.  Select [New List] and type in a new name for the list.

List expiration

Saved lists remain for six months, and then expire.

To keep the title list indefinitely, you can email the wish list to yourself.  Scroll all the way down to the bottom of your wish list, and look for this link:  Email this list.
