This number will be distributed via email and posted on the Library’s front door, on the Library web site home page, in “UPSem Community Life – Richmond Campus” and other relevant Facebook groups.
  • The Library will offer a once-a-day touchless pick-up-service M-F starting at noon for books placed on hold by 8:00 a.m. To pick up these books, Library users may text or call the number listed above.
