Audio & Book Drops Behind Main Library Are Closing

We are closing the Book Drop and Audio Drop behind the main library.  The drops are in disrepair -- rusting from the bottom up -- and we have lost confidence in their ability to safeguard our materials.  Signs are on both drops, advising that they will be closed effective September 1.  The book/media drops in front of the arch (using the Market Street entrance to the parking lot) will continue to be available.
