First Week of the Closure

In just our first week of being closed to the public for renovation, staff have worked tirelessly to inventory our entire collection. That’s over 100,000 items! This includes all of our adult and children’s fiction and non-fiction, magazines, audiobooks, DVD’s, Blu-ray’s and CD’s. Since these items are usually in circulation, our closure gives us the perfect opportunity to take stock of our entire collection. As of today, we have scanned and inventoried almost 40% of our collection, which is quite a bit for just the first week. Needless to say, we’re happy with the progress we’re making.
