How can I return books or other materials during the COVID-19 closure of UNLV Libraries?

All campus libraries and most library book drops are closed. Users are encouraged not to return any items until the library re-opens. Most item due dates have been extended to July 17. Any fines incurred for items due on OR after March 16 and while the Libraries are closed will be waived. In most cases, the Libraries have extended due dates for currently checked-out items to July 17.

  • Only one library book drop is open if you need to return books or DVDs -- this is the book drop outside the Harmon Street Entrance of Lied Library. Library staff will empty the book drop on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Items will be held for 72-hours before they will be checked-in; you will not be charged overdue fines. If the book drop is full, please do NOT leave books on the ground outside the book drop. We ask that you return them at another time when the book drop is not full.
