Returning Library Materials

It's time to return items to the library!

Are your library items overdue?

  • Overdue Chromebooks and hotspots are disabled
  • Academic blocks are placed on all accounts with unreturned overdue materials. Blocks will be lifted when these items are returned.

Do you have materials to return?

The library will be open for returns Monday-Friday 10 am-4pm except on holidays until further notice.

  • If you are only returning books, use the blue book drop found outside the library on the patio between the Donahue and Frost buildings. You can do this anytime.
  • If you are returning Chromebooks, laptops, hotspots, calculators, and/or math kits, go to H parking lot and to the library delivery door in the back of the lot. Please make sure that all pieces and accessories are included at the time of return. We can not accept items that are missing pieces.
  • COVID-19 testing is happening on campus in H parking lot during certain hours. You can see the updated testing schedule on their website. We recommend avoiding these times.  
  • If you are unable to make it to H Lot because of traffic, go to the flagpole at the circle. Call the library at 413-552-2372. A staff member will come to you.

Masks & Social Distancing 
The following guidelines are required when returning your item(s):

  • Facial covering/masks must be worn.
  • Maintain social distancing (6 feet from other people). Lines will be painted outside the delivery door. Tables will divide you from HCC staff. 
  • If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, or shortness of breath), please have someone else return your items for you. Further information about COVID-19 can be found using this link.
  • The staff member on duty will explain the process to you on arrival. Follow all instructions.
