Frequently Asked Questions

I returned my items, why do they appear overdue on My Account?

To ensure the safety of staff and patrons, items are quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours prior to check in, and will still show on your account during this period. Please wait at least 7 days before contacting the library regarding a returned item remaining on your account.

How do I Return My Books?

You may return your books by placing them in our outdoor book drop. It is unlocked at all times.

What types of Items Can I Request?
