After weeks of preparation, the move is in full swing. New shelving is installed at 145 West Ave, and yesterday volunteers and interns moved artifacts out of the old basement and into the new one. Exhausting day! There is an elevator at one end, but the new location has no elevator: everything is carried downstairs by people-power. Everyone’s muscles got a good work out; one entire section of shelving got emptied; and today volunteers are coming back to transport and re-set up the old shelving.
Then…we move more stuff, of course. Then more shelving, more stuff…until we’ve moved everything we can. At that point I call in the pros to move the really big stuff.
Did I mention volunteers? And interns? The people that are making this plan a reality?
