Q. Where do I return books when the Library is closed?


You have two options for returning books.

At The Library:  There are two book return slots, outside of the Library. One is near the Main Library entrance, and the other is adjacent to the Research Commons entrance on Holloway Avenue.  A map may be viewed on the Library’s website.

By Mail:  Mail your items to  Circulation Services, J. Paul Leonard Library, 1630 Holloway Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94132.

Due to a limited staff schedule and the need to quarantine materials prior to check in, all returned items may remain on your account for up to 2 weeks.  Please contact the Book Checkout Desk (circmail@sfsu.edu) if you have questions.
