Inquiring Minds: Returning books to the library

Q. If I checked out books from the Ramsey County Library system, is it ok for me to return them at an Anoka County Library, or do I need to return them to the same location from which I checked them out?

A. You can return your Ramsey County items at any public library in the Twin Cities. The staff at the library at which you return them will attach a slip indicating on which date they were returned, and then they will send them back to our library through a centralized delivery service. We will then check the items in as if they were returned to us on the same date that you returned them to Anoka County. It can take a week or more for us to get items back, meaning that they may temporarily appear as overdue on your patron record. For most items, that will clear as soon as we check the items in.

We do make an exception for rental books and rental DVDs. We ask that you return these to one of our branches, rather than to another library system. These items accrue per day charges, including any days spent in the delivery network while they are in transit from other library systems. Otherwise, feel free to return all other items to whichever library is most convenient for you.
