Q. How do I return my books?

Instructions on choosing the most cost-effective mail option to ship any books or DVDs still on your account due to the COVID pandemic


You can return library books and DVDs either by dropping them in the book return drop outside the library or placing them in the basket inside the library in front of the Circulation desk. If you are remote, you can also return materials by mailing them via your local US Postal Service, using the Media Mail rate. However, please note that you are responsible for the value of all items returned by mail until they arrive at McKillop Library.

To mail your books:

1) Package them in a box with bubble wrap or crumpled paper (so they don't jostle around too much in shipment)

2) Address the box to:

ATTN: McKillop Library Circulation
Salve Regina University
100 Ochre Point  Ave.
Newport, RI 02840

3) When you are at the post office or purchasing your postage label online, choose the Media Mail option. "Media Mail" is a cheaper rate for packages that contain books, DVDs, etc. -- because those books are heavy and USPS knows it!

4) Take it to your local post office to ship!

You can check the status of books checked to you by logging in to your library account. If you have questions about your library account, email the Circulation department at slcirc@salve.edu or chat with one of the librarians.
