How Do I… Return books or other items?

All material checked out from the WSU Libraries can be returned at any WSU campus library, even during our COVID-19 closure. On the Pullman campus, all-hours book return slots are available at all three campus libraries. Please return Course Reserves and Laptops to the library you borrowed them from.

To return by mail, university students and employees may fill out this form to request a mailing label.
