This Lost and Found Policy applies to the Library and Learning Center.

The Metropolitan State University Library is not responsible for the security of personal items brought into the library. Patrons are expected to keep their belongings and valuables within their possession at all times. Lost and found items will be stored by Security in Founders Hall until they are claimed by their owner for up 30 days (for items appearing to have low value) to 60 days (for items appearing to have high value). If possible, Library staff will attempt to contact the owner via phone or university email for identifiable items, such as ID cards or USB flash drives. Unclaimed items will be discarded, properly recycled, or donated to local charitable organizations.

The above policy does not apply to Dayton’s Bluff Public Library.
