Library Materials by Mail
The library will ship library owned materials to the home address of students who have moved home. Use this form to request materials.
As always, the library does not charge overdue fines for borrowed items kept after the due date but does bill for the replacement cost of items that are long overdue. Students may renew borrowed items through their online library account (see instructions) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The library will be more flexible with the number of renewals student can request and understands that some students may need to keep materials until they return to campus in the fall.
Students may return items through the mail. Media Mail, through the U.S. Postal Service, is a cost-effective way to ship books, DVDs, scores, etc. back to the library. Use this mailing address:
Circulation Department, Unit 8418
