The Gratz Industries Library

>> Friday, April 17, 2009

By request, pics of our new gravity-defying library, a work in progress. Video of the construction is on the way.

The hole in the floor is where the attic ladder nestles in. It folds down to the ground below so the library can be accessed.

This is just Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Graphic Novels, General Fiction, Mystery, and Young Adult. All the Middle Grade and Picture Books are in Jo's room, and the Non-Fiction shelves will go on the ground floor below the library.

Are you sure it's the house that books built, or the house built for books?!! Mom

I hope my husband never sees this. Our two story living room will never look the same.

Are those Ikea bookshelves?

Very cool!

Excuse me whilst I turn away and weep with jealousy... that's BEAUTIFUL.

Wow! I'm speechless. Want so badly :)

Yep, those are IKEA bookshelves. WE love IKEA! We have more shelves for them too, but rather than shelve mass market paperbacks separate from hardbacks and trade paperbacks, we decided to mix and match. We get less shelf space out of it, but now all the books by one author are together in one place, and we are happier.

An elegant solution to the perennial question of how to store the never-ending stream of books coming into the house. Take that, Kindle!

that might be the coolest library I have ever seen!
