Summer Schedule for Book Delivery

If you're taking a summer class, please make a note of this important information!

Starting on Monday, June 1, books ordered from the library catalog will only be delivered on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please take this into consideration as you work on papers & projects this summer.

More details:

In the summer, the book delivery service provided by MIC -- the group of libraries with which we share our catalog (more here) -- is scaled back to three days a week. This affects books that you find in our library catalog and request using the "request" link in the blue banner at the top of the page -- books that are available at Baltimore International College, Columbia Union, Hood, Mount St. Mary's University, and Stevenson. Starting June 1, deliveries will be made every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday (excluding Thursday, June 4 and Monday, July 6).

In addition, from May 19 - 29, deliveries will be made on Tuesdays and Thursdays (that's May 19, 21, 26 adn 28).

If you have questions about what day a request you have made will arrive at your requested pickup point, please call the LNDL circulation desk at (410) 617-6801.

If you find yourself in a jam, don't forget that you can always go directly to the college that holds the book you need. You can also check the catalogs of other area libraries that offer LNDL patrons the ability to borrow material (they're the starred ones). And don't forget that the Enoch Pratt Free Library has extensive holdings that might just include what you're looking for. Get in touch with the LNDL reference desk if you need help figuring this out.

The regular delivery schedule -- daily, Monday through Friday -- will resume in the fall. We'll keep you posted!
