More than books on a shelf.

AFTER-HOURS BOOK DROP
This is our outside drop box. We love this little guy as he not only keeps returned materials warm and dry but also because accepts materials from ANY OTHER SALS MEMBER LIBRARY.
That’s right, drop anything from any other SALS library and we’ll see that it makes it home safe and sound.
There is a small parking area behind the library available for patron use. Additionally, patrons may park in the spots on Canada Street in front of the library for fifteen minutes. If you are ticketed for parking in these spots within fifteen minutes while using the library, please present your ticket and library card to the Library Director to have it resolved.
