We will prepare the books for you shortly. If you wish to return books, please use the library drop box.

New Drop Box for Your Returns

10 February, 2021
A new library drop box for your book and other returns has been installed in front of the library entrance. The drop box is accessible 24/7 for CERGE-EI members, for others daily between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.

As long as the library premises remain closed, dropped off items may stay on your library account for several more days before they are checked in. No fines will be incurred during this period.

Please use our drop box to return only items that you borrowed from the Jan Kmenta CERGE-EI Library.
