The Awesome Box sits next to the regular drop box. Return to one box or the other.
Some Awesome Box bookmarks
We built Awesome Boxes for several libraries at Harvard

an alternate returns box that sits alongside your library's regular book drop
The Awesome Box is an alternate returns box that sits alongside your library's regular book drop.
If you are returning an item that you really connected with, drop it in the Awesome Box instead of the regular book drop. Library staff will tag it as Awesome and share it with your library community.
The Awesome Box is popular. It is in over 250 libraries in all parts of the US and beyond.
Why it's good
The Awesome Box's key feature is that it doesn't ask the user to significantly alter their behavior. They are already returning the item to the library, we're only asking them to choose between two boxes.
There are no reviews to write or accounts to log into, just physically vote by returning the item to one box or the other.
