1 December 2009 – Due to hurricane damage the museum had to discard shelving that housed our library as well as nine filing cabinets that held our research aids and records. With the aid of a Pine Cay Project grant, new shelves have been built to replace and improve the library. The new shelving has provided a better organizational structure for our collections.
During the rebuilding of the library shelves we took the opportunity to redesign and use space management techniques in order to achieve a better shelving system as well as a more professional appearance in the library. After the shelves were completed, we had visiting archivists catalog and reshelf all of our books according to the Dewy Decimal System.
