If you would like the Library to consider acquiring a book, please use the Book Request Form. The library will not purchase items that are owned and currently checked out. We cannot guarantee that all items will be purchased nor can we guarantee how long an item will take to acquire. The library does not purchase textbooks, we rely on instructors to purchase library copies for students.
An after-hour book return is located behind the Library on Hubbard Street. There is a book drop at the Circulation counter, and another two just outside the doors to the Library.
