At MSE Library
Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 9am-2pm, Beach-side entrance
Although the Library remains closed, we know that many of you, particularly those graduating this May, are anxious to return your checked out books as soon as possible. Starting Wednesday, May 20th, we are offering a safe and secure way to return your books on Monday, Wednesday or Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Designated bins will be located on the beach-side of the MSE Library, between the outer and inner vestibule doors of the library. Students will enter through one door (which will be marked with appropriate sign), deposit books in the bin, and exit through another door. If opting to return books in this manner, students must respect social distancing from others, wear a facial covering, and follow all directions on posted signage or from library staff at the Library.
Book Returns in the Residence Halls
For those of you who are returning to campus in order to collect your belongings from residence, book return bins are located in the Residence halls at the Wolman lobby, AMR II Jay lounge, and near the security desk in Charles Commons on the 2nd floor.
If you are graduating and you have 10 or fewer books to return
We can send you a pre-paid UPS shipping label by email. You will be responsible for printing the label, packing the books, and dropping them off at a UPS site.
What if I still need the books?
If you remain enrolled and still need the items, you can keep them with you. If you are graduating, or no longer need the books, then we hope these options to return books are helpful for you.
