Don't carry those books, rent a locker!

Are you tired of lugging a backpack full of books around? Is taking the stairs taking a toll on you?

We have lockers available for students to rent, in the lower level of the library, as well as on the 5th floor. The charge is $10 per semester.

Stop at the Circulation Desk to rent your locker. During the elevator replacement project we are predicting that most students will want to rent the lockers on the library's lower level.
