New Jersey's Montville Public Library Parking Lot Gets a Workout
Link to October 7 Newark Star-Ledger article, "Montville library becoming de facto drop-off site for high school".
Excerpt: Since the beginning of the school year, the Montville Public Library has served as an unofficial pick-up and drop-off point for students of Montville High School.
Parents have increasingly been using the lot to avoid the long line of cars headed into the high school next door. And township officials say more parents are driving their kids to school because Montville has cut courtesy busing throughout the district.
The use of the lot was the subject of debate between members of the township committee and the board of education during a joint meeting Tuesday night.
