Quaker Hill Book Drop

    The Library provides a book drop at the Quaker Hill Fire House for the convenience of our customers. The book drop is emptied on a regular basis and no late fees are accrued on items returned in the book drop. To ensure that in-demand material be available to all customers in a timely fashion we ask that RED HOT READS and 7-day videos be returned directly to the Library.
