Contactless Pickup/Return at Fenwick Library

This week, Mason Libraries will begin contactless pickup and return at Fenwick Library on the Fairfax campus.

Starting Friday, July 31, and continuing through Friday, August 21, the Fenwick Library lobby will be open (for pickup and return only) during the following days and times:

  • Monday: 2 to 8 p.m.
  • Wednesday: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Friday: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

To checkout materials, log into your library account ( and place your request. Library staff will pull the requested materials and send an email when your requests are ready to be picked up. If you locate something you need, and it can’t be requested, please email for assistance.

When you arrive onsite, please enter through the main doors (by Argo Tea and facing the Johnson Center) and call the phone number posted to let us know you are there. A library staff member will then bring the materials to the designated area in the lobby.

Returns will be accepted via the book drop in the Fenwick lobby.

Please note, Fenwick Library (and our locations on SciTech and Arlington) will remain closed. Only the lobby of Fenwick will be open for contactless pickup and return. The lobby is not currently open for study, gathering, or other use.

Per the university’s Safe Return to Campus guidelines (, all visitors must wear a mask and follow the appropriate safety guidelines when entering any George Mason University building, including lobby areas and for contactless return or pickup.
