Until we reopen, and probably for some time after, UW Libraries will continue to extend due dates automatically for items checked out from the library. This includes Prospector and ILL items.

If you do wish to return the items you have checked out, the bookdrop at the corner of 14th and Ivinson next to the UW History Building is the most accessible.

Books sent by the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) office to students may be returned using the pre-paid mailing label.

Books that were checked out physically from UW Libraries may be mailed if you are not in Laramie. The address is: University of Wyoming Libraries, Dept. 3334, 1000 E. University Ave., Laramie, WY 82071.

If you are feeling sick, are around someone who has been sick, or have been sick with the coronavirus, wait at least two weeks after full recovery before returning items.

If you have questions about your account or the most current return guidelines, call 307-766-3190 or email

This FAQ provides additional information on the two return locations currently available for UW Libraries:
