Library faculty and staff members discover many possession patrons forget during the hustle of their daily schedules. Items such as water bottles, keys, and umbrellas are delivered to our lost and found every week. Our faculty and staff members understand that life on a college campus can be hectic and items get left behind. The members of our library community want to ensure you are reunited with your belongings. If you misplace an item in Francis Harvey Green Library, visit the Library Help Desk on the Second Floor for assistance. If you forget an item in Presser Music Library, ask one of the staff members at the Library Help Desk if your item has been found. In order to claim your item at either location, bring a valid photo identification card. A staff member will also ask you to sign the lost and found log to verify your identity. If you lose an item in the library, keep calm and follow these steps.
Items that are not claimed by the end of the semester are donated to members of our campus community who are in need. West Chester University Libraries donate unclaimed belongings to organizations such as the campus Resource Pantry. According to the mission statement on their website, “The WCU Resource Pantry eliminates barriers to degree completion for students with financial need by providing access to resources, while empowering students to learn independent living skills and achieve long-term stability.” With these goals in mind, current and future generations of West Chester University students receive the services they require.
