Checked-out materials are due September 30, 2020. We are waiving overdue fines. Book drops are not available during the closings and no one is at the library to accept returns, so hold onto your library materials for now, even if you are graduating. You can return materials when sites re-open, or mail materials only after we indicate that you may do so.
