Did you know...

As a Vanderbilt student you can borrow books and other items from any of the campus libraries (except Special Collections.)  

It's also good to know that you can return most of the items you've checked out to any of the campus libraries. For example, if you borrow a book from the Central Library you can return it to Peabody.

Also look for bookdrops outside the various libraries and at the Commons Center.
