Returning books and calculators

While the shelter-in-place order is in effect, we advise students to hold on to any library books/materials currently in your possession. All overdue fines and fees are suspended. 

If you are leaving the area and have no plans to return, even after the shelter-in-place is lifted, you can return your library materials to the book drop at the Sunnyvale Center (1070 Innovation Way, Sunnyvale, CA 94089). The location of the book drop is outside the building, on the north end. Look for signage near the parking lot with the ambulance nearby.
