Returning Overdue Library Books

Now that the Spring semester is over, we know many students, faculty, and staff have overdue or soon-to-be-due books from our libraries and Interlibrary Loan. We ask that you hold on to those books until the campus re-opens. If you are graduating or need to return your books for other reasons, we will accept books mailed to:

Attn. Returns
Lydon Library
c/o UMass Lowell Central Receiving
1499 Middlesex St.
Lowell, MA 01851

We suggest using book/media mail from the U.S. Post Office. This is a lower shipping rate that is designed for just such a need. If neither of these options work for you, please contact Debby Friedman.
