Where to Return Books
When the library is closed, materials may be placed in the RETURN bins located at L.E. Shore Memorial Library and Craigleith Heritage Depot. To minimize damage, please be careful when placing DVDs and CDs in the drop boxes.
Movies and items that have been requested by other patrons cannot be renewed. A maximum of three renewals per item is permitted.
