Book & Media Drop
Should you have any items that you would like to return, there is a book drop located on the outside of the building between the library and the Town Hall and to the left of the Accessibility Ramp. It is large for DVDs, music CDs, some of the smaller audiobook CDs, and thank you notes to the Librarian.
