A guide to borrowing items from Lemieux Library, Summit and InterLibrary Loan

How to Return Items to the Lemieux Library

The due dates and times for library materials are available on the "Loan Receipt" emailed to you by our circulation software, or can be viewed by logging in to your library account

Items can be returned to the Lemieux Library 3rd Floor Circulation Desk during regular library hours, or to any of our books drops which are available 24/7. The book drops are still checked and emptied regularly by library staff during vacations.

Per our reciprocal borrowing agreement items belonging to other Summit Institutions can be returned to Lemieux and we will ship them back to the correct library. You can also return Lemieux items to other Summit libraries, the return date will be adjusted at check-in. 

We regret that we cannot accept Seattle Public Library or King County Library item returns at the Lemieux Library.

For information on how to renew your items, please see the Student, Staff, or Faculty Borrowers page.

Book Drop Locations

There are three Lemieux Library book drops where you can return regular Lemieux items, as well as InterLibrary Loan and Summit items. The book drops are indicated on the floor maps by orange stars.

Reserve Items should be returned to the 3rd floor Circulation Desk, as they can accrue hourly fines.

The second floor book drop is located near the North Entry. After hours it is accessible with your Seattle University ID card.

The third floor book drop is located inside the West Entry. It is accessible 24/7.
