How can I return items? 

You can return items in the outdoor return bins on Mondays 8:15 am-12:15 pm and Thursdays 12:30-4:50 pm. Outside of these hours, they will be closed to quarantine the returned items. Please note: the drive-through return bin in the Alder Street parking lot is for books and magazines only. DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks may be returned in the outdoor walk-up bin, which is close to the library entrance on Alder. The through-the-wall return slots remain closed. 

If you are coming to the library for a curbside pickup and also have items to return, please inform staff when you call to let them know you are on the way or have arrived in the parking lot. They will place a small return bin on a table in which you can place your items for return.  

What is the library doing to keep me safe? 

Library materials are quarantined for at least 72 hours and further sanitized before they are checked out to you. Library employees wear protective equipment, practice social distancing, frequently wash hands, and sanitize work areas in the library.
