Returning books, games, videos, and any other physical items

Students who are still in the area can return items they are done with in the book return at Entrance B during building hours. Students who are returning to CIA in the fall may keep the items until they return or they can contact the library to make other arrangements. The library is not charging overdue fines for materials returned at any point before September 15, 2020, but replacement charges will be assessed for items that aren't returned by that date.

Seniors or students who are not returning in the fall must return items by May 8, 2020, or contact the library as soon as possible to make arrangements to return CIA property before they leave.

Contact the library staff with any questions or concerns using the chat service or the question form linked above.
