In order to help minimize spread of the coronavirus and protect our campus community, Cowles Library is adjusting our services, hours, and building access. Read more...
Cowles Library has partnered with libraries throughout the state to allow Drake students to return library items at 35 participating libraries across Iowa. This statewide initiative was created to help students living far from campus due to the pandemic. This service will be offered through June 30, 2020.
Participating libraries will accept items from the other Iowa libraries and return those items at no cost to the borrower. Students who have Drake University library books to return can check the book return map for drop-off locations throughout Iowa. The map and a list of all participating libraries is also displayed below.
Students living near Drake's campus are encouraged to return books at the book drop outside the north entrance of Cowles Library.
If none of these options is safely available to you, don’t worry — most library due dates have been extended through August 31, 2020. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about your library items.
Before returning library items, please observe the following safe-handling practices:
