If you lose your key...

If you lose your carrel or locker key, please alert a Circulation Supervisor.  Replacements for keys are $25, and may take from 1-3 weeks.  Replacement carrel keys will be reissued to you; there is no guarantee that you will be able to have your locker key reissued.  Circ recommends you check out a different locker key while the replacement is created.
