Library Drop Box Policy
•Items should be placed in the drop box ONLY WHEN THE LIBRARY IS CLOSED.
•The drop box is for returning BOOKS and MUSEUM PASSES ONLY. Place anything else in the box at your own risk.
•Even if item is placed in box on due date but after library closed, it is considered overdue because the box will not be checked until the beginning of the next shift.
•Please do not cram items too big for the drum into the drop box. Oversized items must be brought into the library when it is open or given to the Town Clerk during her office hours.
•Museum passes must be put into a larger envelope before placing them in the drop box. Lost museum passes are expensive, and are the borrower’s responsibility until they actually are checked in.
•All borrowed items are the responsibility of the borrower until they are actually checked in. Leaving them in the drop box does not constitute returning them.
