The library sends out notices to inform patrons of which titles they have out. Overdue items are considered lost if they are not returned after 12 days. If you still have items that were marked as lost, you may either return them or contact circulation to extend your due date.

All items are charged replacement fee when they are declared lost.  Replacement fees are waived upon return.  Overdue fines are not waived but are only applied to reserve and technology items.

You may return items to our new curbside drop box in the Student Services Center pull through or the book return box in the library breezeway.

Additionally, you may drop off your books at some of the other CSUs and they will route them back to us. Campuses that are accepting items from our campus are listed on the Library Response to Covid Guide.

To contact circulation:

We apologize if this email was not clear and caused problems for you. We had updated the message with information with the library Covid information and how to return items, but that information did not come through on the email that was sent out. Maybe we can just call it the 2020 syndrome?
