How to Return Books & Other Library Materials (Updated August 30)

Posted on: August 28, 2020

Returning books via book drops or by mail

You may return JMU Libraries’ books or ILL books in our book drops on campus.

If you would like to return items to us by mail, you can mail them to:
Carrier Library (Attn: Public Services)
880 Madison Drive MSC 1704
Harrisonburg VA 22807

Returning equipment

You may return equipment you have checked out at the Ask the Library desk on the first floor of Carrier Library. Please do not return equipment in our book drops or by mail.

Due dates, holds, etc.

We have extended due dates for all materials currently checked out.

October 1, 2020 is currently the earliest possible due date for books/materials checked out from another library’s collection via Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Please email with questions about your ILL materials.

September 7, 2020 is currently the earliest possible due date for books/equipment/materials checked out from JMU Libraries’ collections. Materials checked out from our collections will be due on the date indicated in your library account, which should be September 7 or later. You may request to renew books/materials via your library account. Please Ask the Library if you have questions about due dates or renewals.

We’re also deferring any billing for lost items during this time, and are being generous when considering inquiries on a case-by-case basis.

If you had put any item on hold before the Libraries’ physical locations closed, they will stay on hold for you until we re-open.

More information

You can check your library account online. We are here to address any of your questions or concerns at Ask the Library.
