Moving Mountains (of books) in Cloquet
The movers and carpet workers came early Monday morning starting the rigorous task of recarpeting the library. Slowly but surely, sections of shelves were raised and shifted to remove the old carpeting. The Bester Brothers made it look almost easy as they used specialized equipment to raise completely stacked bookshelves around the library. It's an exciting process to witness. Staff from the Duluth Public Library dropped by to inspect the project. Sometime this spring, Duluth is also planning a major carpet and renovation project. Hopefully they got some tips from us!
