Murray Library circulation staff will mail books from Messiah's own Library collection to online students upon request. Search the Library catalog for books you need and fill out a request form for each book.
The circulation period is the current semester, with no renewals.
Students are responsible to return books in person or via U.S. Mail (send Media Mail). If mailing books back, be sure to get a receipt from the post office (preferably with a tracking number) to keep track of your returns.

We are unable to mail books/materials to student outside the United States and those with a Mechanicsburg ZIP code (17050, 17055).
