From The Librarian’s Shelf…
Wednesday, September 29, 2010 • Posted September 29, 2010

The after hours drop box at the library has been moved from the side walk to the front porch. Previously, DVD’s and audio books that could be affected by the heat and cold could not be left in the drop box. Now that the box is in a more protected place, DVD’s and audio books may be left in the box during hours that the library is closed. Library hours are 10:00–6:00 Monday through Friday. During hours that the library is open we ask that items be returned to the front desk. The drop box items are checked in once a day, at 10:00 am. If an item is left in the box between 10:00-6:00 on the day that it’s due, it will not be checked in until the next day, making it a day late.
