The Negaunee Library has a new rural dropbox making returning books easier for the township.

The new drop box is in the Negaunee Township Hall's parking lot off of M-35.

The box will be emptied weekly and the books collected will be rolled back into the system allowing no late fines when using the box.

The dropbox is made possible by grants from the Community Foundation of Marquette County, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Phyllis & Max Reynolds Foundation and the hard work of the Friends of the Negaunee Public Library.

"We are most excited about the fact that it’s a great way to reach people in the community that might not otherwise be able to get in if say we’ve got a snow storm or something," said Jessica Holman, the director of Negaunee Public Library. "They don’t have to worry about getting their books back all the way to Negaunee."

The new dropbox will be open for use after their September 15 ribbon cutting ceremony.
