New Book Drop Installed in Garden

We have installed a new outdoor library book drop on the south side of the Anne Smedinghoff garden, adjacent to the Roosevelt Middle School (RMS) north parking lot. This sleek book drop was generously donated to us by the Illinois Prairie District Public Library in central Illinois when they upgraded to a larger model. It will hold up to 250 standards size books. 

When our construction project begins in early September, the book drop which empties into the library lobby will no longer be operable. We encourage patrons to use either the library garden book drop or the drive-through book drop located in the RMS south parking lot (entrance just off of Oak Avenue) to return their library materials during our closed hours.
