    please do replace the Mormon Trek return box. I use it almost daily — it is very helpful

      Thanks, Margaret. We are working on replacing it. Unfortunately it may take a couple months. We were hoping our vendor would have a spare they could loan us but, alas, there’s not a loaner available. We’ll post updates on the Library Blog.

    What a pain for you.
    I also use this book drop often and hope you
    are able to replace it soon.
    Maybe we need a bake sale.

      Thanks, Jill. We are in the process of ordering a replacement. Stay tuned for updates. Thank you for the bake sale offer 🙂

    Are there a book and AV boxes at the East side location? Perhaps one could be moved to Mormon trek and both locations could have just one box for both types of materials for a couple months.

      Good news! The new book returns are on “expedited” order! Hopefully they will be here in the next 3 weeks. The size changed since we ordered them 18 years ago. To get the capacity needed we ordered three square units instead of a square and a rectangle. In the new returns, all materials will go into all the bins – no presorting by format. We’ll keep you posted about the delivery date. Thank you for your patience!!
