It is on your own responsibility if you return your loans via the book drop. If you return items via the book drop when the library is closed, you cannot get a receipt because the loans are not registered as returned into the library system this way. The library staff records the items returned via the book drop as returned only on the next opening day of the library. Items returned in the book drop can result in penalty fees until the returns are recorded.

Recycling point for books brought in by customers. Bring up to five books at a time.
