Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q: What kinds of things can I pick up from the lockers?
A: You can pick up many types of library materials from the lockers, including books, movies, music, games, and more! Please note that, due to the extremes of outdoor temperatures, the TFL's laptops and mobile hotspots can only be picked up inside the library.
Q: Will the locker doors close automatically?
A: No, they will not. Please make sure to close the locker doors after you have collected your items. Locker users are responsible for any damage that occurs due to a locker door being left open.
Q: I have two items to pick up from the lockers but I only want one. What should I do with the second item?
A: The lockers automatically checkout everything stored inside your assigned locker to your account. If you no longer want an item, please place it in the outdoor book drop so we can make sure it is taken off your account. Any items you leave behind in the locker will remain on your account.
