The Drop is a small 9’x20’ accessory building we built on the library property to house our Smart Lockers in response to the pandemic. This building is temperature controlled, with security cameras and full line of sight so people feel safe entering. The building is always open and offers the library a way to deliver holds 24/7 to our patrons who opt into the service. It also has a service counter with a public access computer and courtesy printer that can also Air Print from a phone, free book rack, and a brochure wall with all our 24/7 products and programs. We have made over 10,000 drops and currently serve over 900 patrons who have opted into the service. We built this structure to offer protection from weather extremes and also in the event we ever have to close. It was paid for through in-kind donations and Covid relief funds and has been a popular service.
