Seattle Campus Book Return Locations

View UW Libraries Book Returns in a larger map

A few notes about library book returns:

  • All libraries have at least one book return located inside the library and some have book returns elsewhere in their respective buildings.
  • Books and media, including Summit and Interlibrary Loan materials, may be returned to any UW Library.
  • All reserve materials must be returned to the desk from which they were borrowed or risk taking longer to be checked in (note: some reserve materials are assessed fines on an hourly basis).
  • If possible, please return fragile or loose material (including CDs in crystal cases) to a circulation desk rather than a book return.
