We needed to construct shelves to hold our collection and begin the migration of all the archival files to the new site. December and January are not really ideal times for these activities, but work got underway anyhow. The building property manager was hired to facilitate moving larger items, boxes of books and file cabinets.  A local interior carpenter and his crew were hired to construct wooden shelvecirc books rooms, which can be disassembled and moved to another location. NEARA members have have been of great assistance in making this move happen. From searching for a suitable site, to packing up books, to moving boxes and building shelves, their help has been greatly appreciated and invaluable in terms of man hours not billed.
