RETURNING YOUR CHECKED-OUT LIBRARY BOOKS

Bookdrop near the H-Building entranceDid you check out books from the library last semester, but because of the COVID-19 campus closure you haven't been able to return them?

Even though the library remains closed, we have taken steps to make it easier for you to bring your books back. A self-service bookdrop has been set up near the main entrance to the H Building (Arts and Humanities).

To get there, enter parking lot #2 (the WiFi parking lot) from Black Mountain Road and head for the H Building. The bookdrop is located close to the curb right in front of the main entrance. Simply swing by and drop your books into the slot.

Parking lot #2 is open Monday-Thursday from 8am to 8pm and on Friday between 8am and 3pm.
