Book Drops

The Library offers universal returns, meaning most circulating material (such as books and DVDs) can be returned to any open New York Public Library location in the Bronx, Manhattan or Staten Island, except the Schomburg Center and the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. Likewise, pick-up of holds may take place at any Library location with the exception of the Schomburg and the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building.  

**Please note that “After Hours” means the book drop is only available when the branch is closed.
