John & Judy Gay Library Outside Book Drop to be Temporarily Closed

Due to construction, the book drop located on the west side of the John & Judy Gay Library will be closed from approximately the last week of May to mid-June. During this time patrons may either drop their materials off inside the library or use one of our two remote book drop locations:


  • Westgate Shopping Center, U.S. 75 at Louisiana St. (105 S. Central Expwy., McKinney)
  • Legacy Texas Bank, Hardin Boulevard at Eldorado Parkway (2976 Eldorado Pkwy., McKinney)


In addition, the Hall Library at 101 E. Hunt St. also has an outside book drop located on Kentucky Street, on the west side of the library.
