New Location of Classic Books

Classics stays in Trenton, moves to 4 West Lafayette
Classics Used and Rare Books moved Saturday 15th of September, 2012 to its new location at 4 West Lafayette. 35 people moved 15,000 books and 60 bookcases in 10 hours.
4 things we learned during the move
  1. Aside from moving bricks, moving books is the heaviest.
  2. Not as many books had fallen down behind the cases at the old store as we guessed.
  3. Don't move a particle board bookcase with the books still in it. (Most of this knew this already!)
  4. Don't let anybody tell you you can't do something (like move 15,000 books in one day). All you need are friends and a stubborn streak.
