Lost & Found Items Policy

The Information Desk accepts items found within the library and then sends them to Mason Police, as appropriate. Upon receipt, all items are stored in a secure location. The Information Desk does not hold items for drop-off or pick-up. 

To best align with Mason Police's policy, GMU Libraries accepts the following items:  

  • Electronics that are valued at $500 or greater (including but not limited to cell phones, laptops, tablets, computers, etc.)
  • Wallets 
  • Passports 
  • Other high-priority items, as appropriate 

These items will be routed to Mason Police on a daily basis as they are received. Items that fall outside of these guidelines may be stored or disposed of as the library sees fit. 

However, if you lost an item while visiting the library, even if it falls outside of the above guidelines, you may still submit a claim.
