In the past few weeks, you may have seen librarians busy moving books off the shelves, onto a cart, and back again. That's because we're doing spring cleaning.
The shelves need to be wiped periodically to protect the books from accumulating dirt and dust. We also take the opportunity to dust all the books. This way the dust won't 'burn' onto the books during the hot summer months. We do this to prolong the shelf life (pun totally intended!) of our materials.
