Your Items May Be Coming Due Soon!

Requesting Returns As Many Book Drops Open

MCFLS, Milwaukee County

The time has come! When libraries initially closed to comply with the Safer at Home restrictions, all checked out items had their due dates extended to June 15th, 2020. Look at your calendars, because that day, once months in the future, is now coming up! Please return your items to your local library, or contact the owning library directly if that is not possible.

Happily, resuming ordinary circulation of items means that placing holds and having items delivered between libraries is also once again possible. Because of this, the Request button has returned to the catalog. Once again you can make a request in the online catalog and have it sent to an available library for pick up. 

Safety measures must remain in place for libraries to operate during this pandemic and the ability to fill requests may be slowed due to staffing and safety concerns. Some libraries in more affected areas remain closed and will not be available as pickup locations or be able to open their book drops. Those libraries have extended their due dates to September 15th, 2020. Please check online before visiting a location to confirm that their book return is open.

Thank you!
