I suggest: They get/take the book down from the top (shelf).

Is this like if someone was taking a book from off a high shelf? Could it be: "They get the book down from above"

Halo teman! Setuju. I am not a good expert in English translations (since my native language is Spanish), but after reading your sentence I would perfectly add your translation of "menurunkan", using the phrasal "to get down", to the other simple forms as "to down" and "to lower". Please, try to add your sentence using the reporting tool. Terima kasih banyak.

Selamat belajar! :)

Wondering if "...from up there" should be accepted. It's not a literal translation, but is more natural than "From above"

From above has a rather supernatural feel to it :-)

Yeah I like that better

I was wondering if they are maybe using a rope to get a banned book?
