Once things were settled at the middle school, our focus shifted to the high school. We loaded up every book cart we could find so we would be ready as soon as the shelves were assembled.
It was deja vu. Wait for the frames, to be installed, and then pop in all the individual shelves:
Once they were in place it was time to unload.
A lot of nonfiction moved to the high school, so pushing the carts was a definite workout! We were all appreciative when the time came to push the lighter fiction loads.
Once the books were in place, we moved the tables and 32 of the computers. This summer the electricians and tech staff will take care of the wiring to make this temporary lab functional.
There isn’t a great place to house the DVD’s at the high school location, but at least they are separate from the books and close to the circulation desk.
Lastly, we moved some of the lounge furniture. The blue tape on the floor shows where the circulation desk will be placed, and wooden shelf panels will be installed on the ends of each row so we have a place to hang signs. There is still a bit of work to do, but it’s close to completion.
The 2017-2018 temporary high school library has approximately 10,000 books, 32 computers, and a DVD collection. This should serve as a nice temporary home while we wait for renovations to be completed in our regular space!
