Are you aware that the library has a brand-new, shiny outdoor book drop? We were able to purchase this drop with funds from the Andover Friends of the Library, as well as money donated to the library by the Marlborough Grange. We ask that you kindly DO NOT use the drop when the library is open, but otherwise, return all of your library materials to this outdoor drop, please. You'll find it located on the handicapped parking side of the building. Eventually, the old book drop in the building will be closed up, so please get used to returning all of your library materials to the new drop. Thanks!
