Missing the books

posted in: General

Like so many other places right now this wonderful library is closed. This creates a great gap in the lives of volunteers like myself, who would normally be assisting the ‘Keeper of the Books’ with various book related tasks and/or admin, welcoming visitors and giving them guided tours of the exhibitions and allowing them to handle the majority of the books in the collection. So I am going to create my own twelfth size version of the library inside a ‘book box’. I have been sawing the wood to make the tall book shelves and have also sawn 90+ little pieces of wood to make into the ‘books’ to go onto the shelves. Now just have to begin to assemble it all and make those tiny pieces of wood look like real books.
