Pick-up and Return

Effective Monday, July 20, 2020, the Life West Library is offering students and faculty pickup and returns of specific library materials. 

I am happy to offer this service. Do remember it is different than our usual routine due to health and safety concerns. 

The library is only open the following days and hours for pickup and returns.
 

Monday and Wednesday

Times:  9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. , 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. 

Friday

Times: 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 am and 11:30 - 1:00 p.m.

Returned items require 72 hours of quarantine. Any item returned is not available for checkout until the following week.
Only items with an off-campus loan are available for checkout.
Items designated as campus use or library use only are not available for the pickup service. Therefore, please bring your own devices, chargers, and cables with you while on campus. 

I appreciate your patience as we return to this new campus way of life. 
Regards,

Barbara Delli Gatti
Library Director
