Current Library Services during COVID-19: Book Returns

Library Book Return Information

Tri-C Libraries are open Monday - Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm. Library books can be returned inside the library during the open hours. For your convenience, there are additional book return locations, with several locations accessible anytime. These locations are listed below. Please note that, due to limited staffing, we might not be able to immediately check items into our system. If you have questions or concerns about due dates or fines, please contact us in person during the open hours, or by online chat reference or by telephone. We appreciate your patience!

Please use the blue Library book return located just outside the main entrance of the Eastern Student Services (ESS) building. If you are already on campus and in the ESS building, you may return books using the in-wall book return right outside the Library entrance.
