Fall textbooks are due back by Friday, Dec. 11, 2020.    If you can return any books on or before Nov. 25, please do so.  (Please observe social distancing blue tape Xs if there are lines!)  I will be emailing all students through campus email regarding curbside drop-off options for in-person return from Nov. 30-Dec. 11.

Please click to follow these instructions if you want to return your books directly to eCampus, rather than bring them to the Library.

Winter term books will be shipped directly to student homes this time.  Please check with the Registrar’s office to make sure that your home address is your UPS mailing address to prevent delays and problems with delivery.
