Drive-up bookdrops will only be open from 8am - 12pm on Tuesdays. Bookdrops are primarily for use of people who are not able to make it into the building to return items: seniors, at-risk patrons, patrons with mobility issues. We encourage everyone else to please stop in and return your items in our shiny new yellow return bins.
The new inside return bins are located inside the lobby and are accessible during Express Hours.
If you need to return items in the evening or after-hours, we are not able to offer this service at this time. What we are able to offer is: renewals, no fines, and partnerships with other Dane County libraries. To renew items that you are unable to renew in LINKcat, please call staff at 608-825-7323 or send the Circulation Department a message from our contact form. You may return Sun Prairie items to any library in Dane county, and many are able to offer after-hour bookdrop service (Columbus, Deforest, Waunakee, and Madison Central are among the closest).
Our drive-through bookdrop is one of a kind in Dane County. It has served us very well for 20 years, but when unforseen things like COVID happen, we have to make changes. Our building design makes this a real challenge, but we do hope to offer after-hours returns again in the coming months. Watch our website and social media for announcements.
Thank you for your continued patience!
