All due dates for all PSU library items have been extended to 5/7/20 with future extensions possible.
Check My Library Account for updated due dates and your account status.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) staff are working to renew ILL items for users (to a due date of 5/15/2020), but this is a manual process and will take time to work through. If you receive ILLiad notices, do not worry about the due dates. We understand items are unable to be returned at this time. 

Recalls are being suspended from March 13, 2020 onward. For previous recalls, no one will be penalized for returning books late, given the current situation. Accounts will be adjusted when the book is returned. You may return the book when the library reopens and when you are able. The library is currently closed (March/April 2020).

You may email with any concerns or fines that haven't been removed.
For interlibrary loan questions, contact


Please do not return any library materials at this time unless absolutely necessary. Returns will not be processed and will remain on your library account until the library resumes regular operations.

If you must return materials, please return Books and interlibrary loan materials to any Penn State University Libraries' book return.

At University Park, the Pattee/Paterno Library book return is located at the East entrance on Curtin Road. If the Library is closed when you return items, they will be backdated when we open again.

You may also return books by mail to:

Penn State University Libraries
127 Paterno Library, Curtin Rd.
University Park, PA 16802

Laptops, chargers, and other equipment: Again, due dates for all of these items have been extended and these items do not need to be returned until the Libraries reopen. Please do not return these items to a book drop.
