What to Do with Your Library Books

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 were 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). We cannot take books at any other book drops.
    • 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.
