Open Forum: Library needs an outside drop box
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

Having just read about the library I find one addition missing and that is an “Outside Drop Box” for those who have difficulty walking in the snow/cold to deposit books read. Many community libraries have such a convenience and it works quite well for all. When asking why not, the answer I receive is that young people will deposit unwanted materials in the box, which could happen, but would soon become, in my estimation, old.

My wife, and I, enjoy the library very much and look forward to the changes proposed hopefully with this suggestion as well!
