Rotunda has been rearranged for your ease of use


It was a rough week last week for our reference librarian and our local history expert as they oversaw a massive shifting of materials in the rotunda level. We moved the History Collection to the other corner office so that the materials are no longer in a room with such severe mold and moisture issues. We have moved the entire (and wonderful to browse) non-fictio oversize book collection into what used to be the local history room. This is certain to make these great books more available to you as we now have them all shelved with the spine facing out.
The move also necessitated the shifting of the non-fiction collection.
It all looks great and will be much more user friendly. I checked out a bunch of oversize books when I went into the room and saw the many wonderful topics covered.
So, check it out!

  1. Glad this is done. Before the fix up a librarian had to crawl on the floor to find a book for me. It was an oversized hidden behind furniture. Can’t wait for the “real” renovation.

  2. Hi Mska!

    I know what you mean. The oversize books are now so much more accessible. Still, as you note, we have reached the tipping point in terms of maximal use of space. I literally have occasional wonderful dreams wherein I come to the building one morning as usual and find that storage space has magically appeared! I shall dream on…
