February 11: Book drop location

Suggestion:  "I would like the outdoor return box to be relocated while construction is going on so that I can make returns more quickly and not have to walk across Second Street to get to the box."

Response:  Thank you for the suggestion.  We have been considering the ramifications of a relocation of our book drop in an effort to make things more convenient during construction.  A relocation off the library property entails approvals from the township and placement so as not to impede traffic.  Another thought is a relocation closer to the current recreation building on the public side of the fence.  Any relocation must be done so as to minimize the chances of vandalism to the book drop and its contents.  We don't want to charge users for damage to materials that they did not do.
