The new and improved book return has been an ongoing project for years and within the last few months, plans have come to fruition.  This project was funded by the North East American Legion, the North East Loyal Order of the Moose, and the North East Community Foundation.


The replacement was seen as a necessity by the Board of Directors and staff members.  For years, bad weather made removing items from the book return extremely difficult.  The new book drop will open from inside, while the actual drop for public book return remains outside, attached to the building.


The staff of McCord Memorial Library is very excited about the new addition to the library and exclaimed a “Yippee” at the conclusion of the project.


McCord Memorial Library would to thank everyone involved in making our new BOOK RETURN possible:

Ed Sveda and Friends

Sylvain Cote Concrete

H.W.C. (Hesling Welding Company)

Corporate Glass

All of these businesses and individuals went above and beyond to help make this unique installation at our library a working viable book return unit.


The above named and local funding are what makes the North East Community and amazing place to live and work.  “Amazing Things Are Happening Because of You” as our theme for the Annual Appeal has certainly been proved true by the achievement of our new book drop.


Please remember to use the new book drop as the old ones are going to be gone soon–they will be donated to our local fire companies.  We appreciate your understanding while we transition into this new feature of the McCord Memorial Library!


Thank you North East!!!

Mary Kieffer, Library Director, along with the Board of Directors invite all to check out the new book drop.

Each year we must raise funds in order to continue serving the community as we do.

We are an independent library, and our state funding is based on community

support. Although times are tough, any contribution you can make to insure

the continuing excellence of McCord Memorial Library in the future,

would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.
