The donations drop-off box will be moving at Mentor Public Library’s Main Branch.
Beginning Wednesday, Nov. 4, people will be required to drop off their donations to Mentor Library—including books, movies and music—in the outdoor box provided at the Read House, which is next door to the library’s Main Branch.
A new turn-around driveway was added to the Read House, so patrons can enter and exit the property safely without needing to back out on Mentor Avenue.
There will no longer a donation box beside the driveway at the Main Branch.
The move puts the donations closer to where they are stored at the Read House. From there, they are given away via MPL’s Little Free Libraries or Pop-Up Library, donated to local nonprofit organizations, or sold during a Friends of the Mentor Public Library Book Sale.
The donation box moving is also the first step in a project that will add a drive-up window to the Main Branch and change its driveway’s direction.
