We have both indoor and free-standing, outdoor book drops at all of our
branches.  What do other libraries do about emptying these book drops
during holiday closures?  


Please respond offline to the following:


1.       Do you leave the book drops open or do you lock/close them
during the holiday?


2.       If you lock the book drops, what has been your experience?
Patron outcry? Materials left outside on the ground near the book drop? 


3.       If you leave them open, do you have staff come in and empty?
If so, what is the number of staff hours used during the holiday
closure?  Do you also have staff shelve materials during holiday?


Thank you in advance for any information!
