You can return your library materials inside any open library location

Or on the outside book return bins at these locations:

  • Love Library under the link (City Campus)   
  • Dinsdale Family Learning Commons at the entrance of the parking lot (East Campus)

If the items are still on your account(s) and it has been more than a week since you returned them, please contact us at 402-472-9568 or

You can also now return UNL Libraries books to the UNO, UNK, and UNMC libraries.

  1. Now that the library is closed and there is no staff, can I still return books? Isn't your book return overflowing? I have nothing immediately due, but I have quite a few books checked out and want to make sure they get back to you. Should I just hold off for now?

  2. Great question! Please hold onto your books until we re-open, unless you really need to return them.

  3. I have rented a book via the UNL Interloan Library. It says my due date is 5/29/20. I do not live in Lincoln so how do I return this book? Should I mail it back as it belongs to Indiana University? Will I incur late fee charges? Thank you for any information you can provide

  4. All late fees will be waived due to the current campus closure. If you will be returning to campus sometime this summer or fall, you can hold onto the book until then! If you are not returning to campus, you can mail the book to us using the address on the bottom left of the UNL Libraries website home page.
