The Rotating Collections Service no longer requires the use of return labels for Rotating Collections boxes. If you wish to use return labels, an optional template can be found by clicking here. The template is for Avery labels #5164 but you can also print on regular paper and cut and tape them over the labels already on the boxes. Just write in the name of your library in the From section of the label.
