Library Build Day 18 – Sliding Ladder

Today is one of the most glorious days of my life.

My sliding library ladder was installed!

My built in Ikea Billy bookshelves are complete!

I was climbing and sliding and giggling in every spare moment. Dad could even hear me when he was outside making minor adjustments to the end stoppers (these stop the ladder from either running into the wall and ruining the new paintwork, or sliding right off the exposed end of the rail and causing a giant crash).

After that, there was talk of going to the pub to celebrate, but I wanted to play with my books. It’s time to figure out my own cataloguing system and figure out the shelf height required for some of the larger books*.

*No, I will not create a quarto section for oversized books. That’s where books go to die and I will not do that to the books in my care.

    It’s hard not to be joyous with a sliding ladder. Anyone who says that happiness comes from within has obviously never had their dreams realised.
