A book's journey from box to bookshelf

Dear friends,

I have been swimming in new books! Hundreds of books have been added to the LS Library since the beginning of the school year, and students have been checking them out hungrily.

I made this video to take you on a trip from inside the cold, dark confines of a cardboard box to on our brand new bookshelves. This is how a regular book turns into a LIBRARY book! Enjoy!

Alrighty folks, here's a MATH question for you!

If each book takes about 10 minutes to process and catalog, and let's say we've added about 200 books to the library, how many hours did those books take to get shelf ready?

Happy reading (and calculating),
