You can return Baltimore County Public Library materials to any Baltimore County Public Library branch: ( Hours and Locations: http://www.bcpl.info/hours-locations/#neighborhood).or BCPL bookmobile, with the exception of 2 hour Chromebooks.

All branches have book drops so most items, with the following exceptions, can be returned after business hours:

Chromebooks:

Seven Day Chromebooks can be returned to any branch but they must be put in the hands of a library staff member at a service desk and not returned through a book drop.

Two Hour Chromebooks must be returned to the branch where it was checked out. They must be put in the hands of a library staff member at a service desk and not returned through a book drop.

Playaway Locks can be returned to any branch but they must be put in the hands of a library staff member at a service desk and not returned through a book drop.

Library materials must be returned or renewed by their due date. Items put in a book drop by their due date are considered on time if returned before the branch opens the next business day. Items returned in the book drop after the branch opens will accrue an extended loan (overdue) fee which will be automatically attached to a customer’s library account.

1 DAY DVD MOVIE (Entertainment or feature movie DVDs) have a one day check out/loan period.  

Entertainment or movie DVDs (labeled 1 DAY DVD MOVIE) that are checked out on Saturday are due at any of our branches or in any branch's book drop on Sunday to avoid late fees being attached.
