Do you have checked out items that you need to return? We’ll be reopening the outdoor dropbox on Mondays and Fridays from 9-6, starting May 29th. Please put only one item at a time into the opening, to avoid jamming the drop box. We are not accepting ANY donated items–only library materials. Thank you and be well!
