We have recently begun the major project of relocating around 25km of books from storage back to the newly refurbished Liverpool Central Library.
The historic library and archive has recently completed a £50m upgrade.
Around 20 crew members per day will be packing up to 20,000 crates to move the collection. Rare and valuable items, including the £5m Audubon's "Birds of America" that will have its own dedicated room in the new library, will be kept under close guard in secure transportation.
In addition to the move itself, Andrew Porter Limited will help to sustainably dispose of redundant library furniture and equipment, in line with Liverpool City Council's own environmental policies.
Our staff members Saul Emberton and Rick Fletcher can be seen at work in the following clip from ITV's Granada Reports:
