So…what happened to the books?

Carpeting a library is a complicated process. You have to move the books out of the way in order to lay the carpet, then move them back again. But because the move is so temporary, it’s not a matter of taking the books off the shelf, boxing them up, and then putting them back on the shelves when the carpet is down.

In fact, the shelves need to move too.

So what does a library do? Hire a specialized moving company. Watch below as the team from our library movers transports a full row of shelves from where it had rested out of the way of the new carpet installation back into place in the stacks.
