Returning Library Materials After Hours

As a courtesy, during the hours that the library is closed, there are 2 bookdrops on campus where you may return library materials.

The first outside bookdrop is located in front of the student services building. To drive up to the bookdrop, drive up Red Gum Lane towards the parking structure , turn left into the one-way street and stay in the left-most lane. It will be on the driver's side.



A second outdoor bookdrop is located outside of the Bronco Bookstore near the 24/7 Bronco Lockers, facing parking Lot 'G.'

The library will pick up books between 9-10 am (varies) for check-in. Any items deposited after the pickup will be checked in the following day. It is the borrower's responsibility to return materials on time.
