Credit goes to Dorothy Mays for the title of this post. The reference shelves will be dismantled on Monday 4/30. It will get kinda noisy in here — sorry.
We have begun moving the reference books downstairs. The A’s and most of the B’s are already downstairs, so if you get confused looking for a reference book, staff are prepared to take you downstairs and show you where they are.
In an interesting twist on 21st Century librarianship we were unable to sell the shelving to another library, but only for their scrap metal value. It seems a lot of libraries are removing shelving at the moment.
