I need to return my books, but the Library is closed. What do I do?

by Kara Logsden on December 15th, 2017

The holidays are here and that means some changes in Library hours. There is a complete list of Holiday Hours posted on the Library’s webpage.

If the Library is closed, most materials can be returned to our outside book return, on Linn Street, and the two remote book returns, located at First Avenue Hy-Vee and the Mormon Trek University of Iowa Community Credit Union. The remote book returns are emptied about 1:00 PM each day, 365 days a year.

15% of items returned to the Library come back through the two remote book returns. How do we know? Four times a year we count all items returned in a one-week period. Between November 27 and December 3, there were 17,308 items returned to the Library. Of those, 2,610 were items returned in the remote book returns.

Please give us a call if you have questions about Library hours or materials return. We’d be happy to answer your questions or help you renew items that can be renewed. You may also renew items at the “My Account” link on the Library’s webpage or by using the AWESOME Library App.
