Books and more books
The staff spent two days unloading 33,400 pounds of materials. It took approximately 2 hours to unload 31 pallets of boxes and distribute them around the building. We then took aboutÂ 4 hours each day to unbox the items and put them on the shelves. That is equivalent to 40,000 items. We are now putting the materials in order for our opening day July 10th.
You can see how big the dumpster is we are using for recycling the cardboard boxes and paper used to pack the books. We filled this right up to the top. The only reason you can’t see the paper on the top is we shoved it down (with some help from workmen and a front loader) and put some cardboard boxes onÂ top so it wouldn’t blow away. We have found this area is very windy!
