Non-Delivery Day Log

Below is a list of dates when no ReCAP delivery took place.  The ReCAP courier regularly delivers every weekday except for University Holidays and weather emergencies.  CUL has a contract with Bohren's Moving and Storage for these deliveries. 

Italicized entries describe delays due to computer systems not physical delivery.

The courier delivers to both ReCAP partners NYPL and CUL in Manhattan.  Columbia has several drop-off points.  It is customary for CUL to suspend delivery when NYPL is closed (e.g. MLK Day).

To pre-determine closures consult the following websites:

  1. Columbia University Academic Calendar
  2. Columbia University Holiday & Personal Days
  3. Princeton University Holiday Schedules
  4. NYPL Closings
