Returning Items

In the interest of safety, all returns must go into the book drop. Do not leave them on the pickup table.

1. Decide What you Want

Browse our online catalog for MATERIALS THAT THE RUSSELL LIBRARY OWNS.

Please note: We cannot obtain materials from other libraries at this time. For that reason, holds cannot be placed via the online catalog.

If you need assistance in finding something, call us at (860) 347-2528, Monday-Friday 9am-6pm.

2. Request Your Materials

There are 3 easy ways to make requests:

1. Fill out the website request form

2. Email us: circdept@russelllibrary.org

3. Call us: (860) 347-2528

Remember, we can only supply materials that are actually in our building.

3. Schedule Pickup

Once we have gathered your materials, we will call you and schedule a pickup day and time. Pickups will occur every 15 minutes, so please be prompt. NOTE: We have received many, many requests. Please be patient. It may take us a few days to get back to you.

Initially, pickup will be Monday-Friday 9am-4pm. We will add more hours as we bring more staff back into the building.

4. Pickup Your items

Arrive at your scheduled pickup time and park directly in front of the main entrance. A paper bag with your name on it will be waiting for you on a table outside our front entrance.

IF YOU HAVE ANY ITEMS TO RETURN, PLEASE RETURN THEM IN THE BOOK DROP.

To ensure a safe pickup for you and our staff, library staff will not be outside when you pickup your materials.
