About my libraryHow can a 4,600 sq. ft. house have such little available shelf space? Although the rooms are large and ceilings high, there are surprisingly few nooks where a bookcase might fit, and you don't want to be banging holes in its century-old walls to mount standard & bracket shelving.

The long-range plan is to turn the unfinished attic (partially seen at right) into a 1,100 sq.ft. library, complete with a microfilm/digitization alcove. But there's lots of critical restoration that must be done before that, so for now, all non-essential books will be packed away. The must-have parts of the collection will be clumped together in bedrooms and hallways, racked in the dish hutch, piled in the parlor, stashed in the pantry, and stacked in the study. All whereabouts reliably mapped by LT.
