The books were packed carefully in boxes lined with buffered tissue, and more fragile books were tied with white twill tape to make sure they don't fall apart when moved.
Collections Manager Amanda McGuire (center) led the charge by instructing volunteers and troubleshooting problems, and Wabash Archivist and Museum Board Member Beth Swift gave a ton of professional assistance!
We got a few surprises, too: who knew there were books behind books? No wonder we couldn't locate them during the inventory!
Now the boxes are numbered and ready to store. Thank you to all our packing volunteers and staff who came in especially for packing day!
