Kelly Library Curbside Pickup Service

Monday to Friday, between 12:00 and 4:00 p.m., students, faculty, and staff can borrow items from the Kelly Library’s circulation collection. This Curbside Pickup service–also available at Robarts–applies to DVDS and CDs, as well as print books that are not available through the HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service. Requests must be made using the UofT Libraries Catalogue.

Find out more about Kelly Curbside Pickup here.

The Robarts service only applies to materials housed in the Robarts Library building stack and storage locations, including the East Asian Library. You can find more information here.

There’s no need to return Kelly Library books right now: all loans are being extended and no late fines charged. Due dates for all UofT library materials have been extended to September 18th, 2020. If necessary, they will be extended further once we get closer to that date. If you’d like to return books, the Kelly Library book-drop is now accepting returns until further notice, along with Robarts.
