Returning Books for Spring and Summer 2020

Summer Session: The library will have limited access for students to return books, calculators and laptops to the library at the end of the Summer session. Please note that we will only be accepting returns and we will be practicing social distancing protocols. Additionally, materials will untouched for 3 days and then checked in. We will not be open for other services (including studying). This is for everyone's safety.

If you have library books, calculators or laptops or any other library material from Spring 2020 and Summer 2020, please return them to the library.

The silver library drop box across from the library entrance is available for book and material returns during closed hours. If you need to return electronic material such as laptops, hotspots, or will not be able to return material during this time period, please contact James Adams.
