    Hi! I have a hold that’s ready for pickup at Stanford Warren. How do I get it transferred to another location?

    If the books we placed on hold at Stanford L. Warren are to be picked up before the library reopens, what do you advise to do? Are the books on hold re-located to another library for pick up?

    Can we still return books to this library location?

      Great question! Yes, the book drop on the street is still open. (You can also return books from SLW to any other location.)

        Can movies be dropped in the box as well?

        • Sarah Dooley August 9, 2018 at 2:51 pm #

          Yep, that should be fine!

    I have a Wifi box that’s due tomorrow trying to see if I can renew it but unfortunately the building is getting maintenance where do I go to renew it

      Hi Chelle – unfortunately, wifi boxes can’t be renewed (that’s the standard policy for them, not just because SLW is closed). You can return it at any of our other locations.
