Why is the book return at my library closed during open hours?

First, we apologize for the inconvenience. We realize how eager many library users are to return items they've been holding onto!

We’ve been overwhelmed by the volume of returns so far. Many of our book returns are filling up faster than staff are able to check in items. Staff are working hard to check in returns as quickly as we can.

Book drops and Self-Check-in are open on Sundays and Mondays when all libraries are closed. Staff do not work in library buildings on Sundays or Mondays. We aren't available to assist if book drops are full or if Self-Check-in is out of order while we're closed.

Here's what we're doing to help:

Thank you for your patience while staff return to libraries.
