Checking Out? Curbside Service? Delivery?



Because of Covid the Spring Semester has some options offered by the library.  If you are a student and have to quarantine, the library will mail, or offer curbside pickup for you!  Yes, if you are uncomfortable entering the building, we'll check out your items and put them on a cart in the foyer or maybe a friend can pick them up for you and leave them outside your door?  Or if you are on campus isolating, we'll get them to your dorm.  We'll even ship them to you if it's going to be some time before you are allowed back on campus.  Contact: and we'll take care of you.


How Do I Login?
