How do I return a borrowed book while the library is closed ?


You are not required to return books during the COVID-19 outbreak, and fines will not accrue during this period. If you do receive any fines/charges, please contact the Libraries when they re-open and the charges will be waived.

If you would like to return your books or other borrowed materials to the Libraries, a book return bin is now in place outside Security Services at the William Small Centre at the Keele campus. Please see the photo and the map below indicating the location of this book bin.

For anyone driving the best place to park is the Aboretum Parking Garage. Parking is currently free and parking gates are up. Please allow up to two weeks for items returned to disappear from your account in light of book quarantining processes and other workflows in place.
