Here are some before (weeding) and after photos:

I think that in total, after the weeding, the shelf space has been reduced by more than 50 shelves.
By the end of the week I will have numbers of the books deleted from the catalogue.
My sincere thanks to Anthony Lewis, Palmerston North City Librarian, Hayley Parsons, a very hard-working volunteer who has been in every day for almost 3 weeks, and Marjorie Dawson, who is a friend and library colleague, who has come out to assist many times over the last 2 weeks.
Without their help, it would have taken me AT LEAST 12 months to do the weeding.
I tell you, I'm pretty tired at the end of the day and haven't been very creative, but this library is going to be fantastic!
