New Outdoor Book Drop on UW-Madison Campus

Memorial Library on the UW-Madison campus has recently installed an outside book drop at the top of their loading dock area. Now patrons can temporarily park in the loading dock (on the corner of Langdon and Lake Street), walk up a small flight of stairs, and return their items without having to worry about finding a parking place or having change for the meter.

The UW-Madison campus libraries have an Open Return policy. That means that books on regular loan from the Law Library can be returned to any campus library with an Open Return sticker on its book return. All other items must be returned to the library they were borrowed from, including:
  • Reserve materials
  • Materials on Short-Term Loans (7 days or less)
  • Journals/Periodicals
  • Fragile Items
