Yes! All library materials can be placed in the outside drop box. (DVDs, CDs, VHS tapes, magazines, and books can all go in the outside drop box.) Please do not place donations in the outside drop box, we would appreciate it if you brought them inside so we can thank our generous donors.

Does APL take donations?
