My Lists My Lists is a way to keep lists of titles you want to check out someday. You can also use My Lists to manually organize titles you already have checked out rather than using the automated My Reading History. My Lists is accessible online when you login to your Library Account. Each title added to a list will remain there until you delete it from the list or until the library no longer owns it.
