Library Renovation: The Kardex

A very ancient microfiche repository (a.k.a the Kardex) has been partially removed from the back of the library. Very quietly, as befits a library, our latest renovation project has begun.

It was always quite an event on the rare occasion it had to be used. And, for those who’d like to know, the Kardex worked by pushing a keypad to make the shelves move up and down.

The library is planning on using the newly reclaimed yet minuscule space for an archive room and a much needed small office.
