Lost and Found 411

Do you know where your flash drive is?  If not, and you've been in the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus recently, there's a good chance you left it there.  Flash drives are the most common items in the library's Lost and Found, but they're far from the only ones. Umbrellas, jackets, purses, phones and more--from the mundane to the valuable, library patrons leave behind hundreds of possessions every year.

Say it happens to you.  You get home from the library, and realize you don't have your phone, or that flash drive with the 50-page paper you've been working on.  Don't panic.  There are some things you can do to get your property back.

1)  Return to the library as soon as possible, and look where you last remember having your item.  Items make their way to the library's Lost and Found, but only if someone sees them and turns them in.  Something small (such as a flash drive) could remain unseen for days.

2)  The Blagg-Huey Library Lost and Found is maintained at the Circulation Desk on the first floor (to the left as you enter the building.)  Contact them in person or by phone (at 940-898-3719) as soon as possible.  Items are kept in Lost and Found for at most one week.  

3)  Once a week, valuables in the library's Lost and Found are turned over to campus police.  Contact them at 940-898-2911 to inquire about your lost item.
