What to Do with Your Library Books

UPDATE: The deadlines have been extended until May 31.

Here is updated information on dealing with library books you have checked out from the University Libraries.

  • Books do not need to be returned to the Libraries at this time and all due dates have been extended until May 31 (with the possibility of further extensions).
  • If you need to return books, please place them in the book drop near the west entrance of Ellis Library (close to Speaker’s Circle).
    • If you not on the Mizzou campus, you can mail your books to the library via USPS, UPS, or Fedex to:
      Ellis Library Circ Desk
      c/o Burt Fields
      101 Ellis Library
      1020 Lowry Mall
      University of Missouri
      Columbia, MO 65201
    • You can also return your books to any MOBIUS Library
  • Returned books will stay on the user’s account for awhile, but there will be no fines assessed for books turned in during this time.
  • Books that were checked out at campus libraries other than Ellis Library, should still be returned to Ellis.
