While we are under COVID-19 restrictions, please ONLY return items to the book drops if you will not be able to return them when the library reopens -- for example, you are leaving town for the rest of the semester and may not return. 

During this period, we are permitting return of ALL items in the book drop, not just books.


Patrons can return books by dropping them in one of the drop boxes outside of the library. Please do not return reserves, technology equipment, or DVDs in the book drops. 

You may return Georgia State University library books to any campus library, regardless of where you loaned them.
