What if my books are due when the campus is closed?

The due dates for all items due during this closure have been renewed through the end of August, and no fines will accrue while we are closed. The campus is closed so items cannot be returned to the library until campus is re-opened. Please hold on to your checked out items until the library reopens.

Library materials can be returned at a curbside library return event on:

  • Monday June 15, 11:30-3:30
  • Thursday June 18. 9:30-2:30
  • More drop-off event to come.

The drop-off location will be the roundabout at the front of the school (in front of Science building and in between parking lots A and B).

Please note: that you do not need return your items until we reopen – all due dates have been forwarded through August (and no fines are accruing during the closure), but if you would like to return your library items then you can do so at one of these above events.
