One of the most popular questions we have been getting the past week is ‘How do I return my Library books ?’ There are currently three options right now:
1. If you are on campus packing up your dorm Monday – Friday from 9 am – 2:30 pm, you can drop them off at the library, which will be staffed weekdays from 9 am – 3 pm.
2. If you are on campus packing up your dorm Saturdays and Sundays, there will be a clearly marked bin outside our loading dock doors (facing the AIC building) which you can deposit all your borrowed books (no tech items, please!) .
3. If you can’t take advantage of the first two options, you can leave your borrowed books and tech items in your dorm, and Res Life said they will be collecting the items and returning them to the Library.
Under NO circumstances can you return your Bookstore ‘rentals’ to the Library – you must return them yourself to the Bookstore. We are not responsible for returning your loans to the bookstore. No exceptions!!
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Library at 401-232-6125 (Monday – Friday, 9 am – 3 pm) or chat with a librarian in the chat box on our homepage.
As the semester winds down, please be mindful that the Library CAN NOT take any rental books back which were rented from the Bookstore! Those books need to be brought back to the Bookstore, to clear your account so you won’t be charged replacement fees. The Library isn’t responsible for your Bookstore rentals which are left with us.
We don’t want to leave you hanging! Remember to return where you got them. Thanks!
If you have any outstanding items on your account – from books to phone chargers to dry erase markers – you will be “billed and blocked” from getting your actual diploma if you’re a graduate and/or your final grades for the semester. DO NOT WAIT until May 17 – May 19 to clear this up, as the closer to Graduation / end of the semester the longer it will take to go through all proper channels to take the block off. It won’t be an immediate remedy, so PLEASE check your bookbags, dorm rooms, cars, etc and bring everything back to the library ASAP. Clear your account today!
This is an especially busy time of year for study room bookings at the library, and we like to accommodate as many of you as possible, but if you don’t follow our policies we can’t process your bookings, so remember: no more than 3 hours per booking, and no fewer than 3 people in group.
Also, keep in mind that we only allow 6 hours of booking per student per week.
Final exams are almost upon us and we’re getting tons of study room requests, and we’re happy to fill them of course, but if you’re not doing it correctly we have to cancel them and you run the risk of losing out on study space. So just remember the simple rules shown above in groovy 1970s fashion.
