External Book Returns at all Branches. All external book returns will be open Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 4:00pm each day. No internal access to book returns at any branches. Due to the volume of returns, and the quarantining of materials (72 hours), it may take up to seven days for items to be cleared from your account. We want to assure you that no late fines will be charged regardless of due date.
