Don’t worry! All items are renewed through August 31st, and no fines or fees are accruing on anything you have at home. We prefer that you remain safer at home and hold onto the books that you have checked out if at all possible. If you live near another CSU campus, you may be able to return your book to one of their bookdrops for later check-in at our library. Please contact Library User Services with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 310-243-3712.
Staff will empty bookdrops once per week. Items will be quarantined for health and safety for a period of time before they are checked in. You will receive an email notice when it is checked in and the item is removed from your record. You can also review your library record to see if you have any CSUDH or CSU+ books checked out by logging into My Library Account. If you have an interlibrary loan item, you can review the status of your account by logging into your Interlibrary Loan Account.
