If you lose your key...
If you lose your carrel or locker key, please alert a Circulation Supervisor. Replacements for keys are $20, 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.
