Movers Schedule for May Phase of Addlestone Improvement

This entry was posted on Thursday, April 24th, 2014

Starting Saturday, May 3 through Friday, May 9, the movers will:

  • Move the entire  general collection (including the curriculum and juvenile collections) – some portion  will go onto the existing mobile shelving and the rest will be boxed and stored in the building.
  • Squeeze 60 wooden tables, 240 wooden chairs and 70 black lounge seats on the second and third floors into the smallest available space – to make space for the books and the massive amounts of shelving.

The movers will be working 7 am – 7pm, 7 days a week  to get this work under the supervision of Robin and Bobbie.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Thanks everyone – this is a massive undertaking with a large number of moving parts. You’ve all been so helpful, pitching in to identify what needs to be done, and then taking care of doing it.  We couldn’t ask for a better team.
