    • Books are dropped off at the library, moved to a table in the meeting room and the Friends move the books to their storage facility at least once a month, weather permitting, or if the manager tells them there are too many down there.  The storage facility is across the street from the library. 
    • The Friends have decided to take advantage of the system advertising a specific pick-up time for donations.  It will be from 4:30 -6:30 PM on the day of their regular monthly meeting.  Pick up will be the last Tuesday of each month from 4:30 -6:30.
