Need to return items? Just put them in the bookdrop!

Staff will not be accepting returned items in person during curbside service.

All items returned will be placed in quarantine for 4 days before being checked in and made available to patrons for checkout.  All fines are waived until further notice – your health and safety is our primary concern!  Please remain in your vehicle if another patron is at the book drop when you stop by.

We still don’t know when the Killingworth Library building will reopen, but we look forward to serving you with our curbside service!
