Returning items to the library
Books, journals, magazines, and musical scores may be returned in the book drop on the library’s front porch.
Books, journals, magazines, and musical scores can be shipped back through the mail. Media Mail, through the U.S. Postal Service is a cost-effective way to ship these items back to the library. Please pack items securely with adequate packing material to keep the contents from shifting. Single or smaller items may be returned in a padded envelope.
Our mailing address is:
Circulation Department, Unit 8418
421 N. Woodland Blvd.
DeLand, FL 32723
By using the Media Mail Service by the USPS, educational items may be shipped back to the University at a relatively low cost. The service does take a bit more time to reach its destination, but with tracking you will be able to ensure that these items are on their way and reach the library. The service is available for shipping educational and research items.
Media Mail shipping rates are significantly lower than other mailing options through USPS. A stack of 8 books weighs about 11 lbs. The cost for Media Mail Services is $8.14 shipped to/from Miami, Florida, central Alabama or San Diego, California.
