The Lincoln Park John T. Richardson Library 24-hour book drop is open for returns and is located outside the west quad-side library entrance to Kelly Hall, behind the statue.
The downtown Loop Library book drop is open for returns 8am-5pm Monday through Friday. It is located to the right of the library entrance on the 10th Floor. Patrons will have to use the 333 S. State Street entrance, show a DePaul ID, and sign in to access the DePaul Center.
Please read on for additional details for returning books and other material:
You will not be charged overdue fines for any materials due back during the Library closure. If you have library books, please return them to the book drops at your earliest convenience. For other materials (DVDs, game consoles, etc.) checked out, please contact us at email@example.com to (1) setup an appointment for curbside equipment drop off or (2) if you are unable to return equipment using curbside drop off, we ask that you hang onto equipment until the library re-opens.
Because our Library buildings are closed to patron traffic at this time, it is not possible to borrow physical materials (books, DVDs, games, etc.) or request I-Share books.
I-Share delivery service has been suspended state-wide and we will not process interlibrary loan requests for print materials until further notice.
Our electronic resources, including a large number of e-books and streaming videos, are still available to DePaul students, faculty, and staff.
We are unable to accept packages until further notice, please hold on to the books for now. No overdue fines will be charged.
While the Library buildings are closed, we are not able to circulate physical materials. This includes mailing books to distance learners.
