You’ve probably noticed how much easier it is to locate books in the library. Our reference librarian Carol has been carefully giving the collection a much needed weed. Latest report in is that the weeding process is near completion.

The library's ladder and stool collection

But, weeding doesn’t just end with books, it includes other things in the library as well, and in this case ladders. It seemed that whenever you wanted to cut through the stacks there were a number of obstacles in your way: tall ladders, short ladders, and stools… ugh! Last week we gave each ladder (and stool) a test to see if it should stay or go. We now have ladder-free aisles in the stacks. You should still be able to find a ladder or stool in every second aisle should you need one. However, don’t hesitate to ask a librarian for help if you can’t quite reach that gem on the top shelf.
