  • Outside of Hagestad Hall, open 24/7.
  • In the basement of Hagestad, to the left of Textbook Services main doors (29 Hagestad Hall).

If you are unable to physically return your books to campus, mail your items to:

River Falls, WI 54022

Books that are mailed must be postmarked by September 2nd and received no later than September 9th. We recommend shipping with tracking. Click here for instructions on how to ship books back to us. Overdue and lost fees will apply.

If you have any questions concerning book return, please let us know at

Fall Textbook Issue

Textbook issue will continue throughout the rest of the semester following our normal procedure. If you drop a class, please return the textbook(s) as soon as possible. If you have added a class, check at the Help Desk before running a book list. If you change sections for the same class, check with Textbook Services, as many classes use the same book in all sections.

No appointments required starting Wednesday, September 8th.

Distance learners and students in certain programs who cannot easily get to campus when we are open can request their books be mailed to them. Students enrolled in classes that meet on campus during standard times or who have a River Falls mailing address are expected to pick up their books in person. There is a single flat fee of $12 to have your textbooks mailed (excluding shipments outside of the U.S.) Use the "Request Books to Be Mailed" link on the left side of this webpage to submit your request. Mail requests will be processed starting August 16th.

If you have any questions concerning textbook issue, please email us at
