Returning Borrowed Materials

Although the Oboler Library building is closed, we are accepting returns through the book drop slot, just south of the main entrance.

A prepaid return mailing label is included with all borrowed library material, which means you can send the material back for free through the U.S. Postal Service.*

The prepaid shipping label will have the following return address:

*Please allow adequate time when returning library materials by mail. Otherwise, renew items online in your ISU Library as needed to avoid overdue fines.
