After the work was done the task of setting more than 52000 tomes in the room was a task for the employees. The pressure making the room all set fast for the revelation was building in and the employees were nothing but stressed.
The Library management launched a video of the employees restocking the books and it is a worth watch. The empty room with large shelves itself is a great sight. The hard work done by the employees for segregation, stocking the books on the shelves was a great sight.
The video was watched by many people over the internet and the employees got praise for their effort giving. The place also earned admiration as the architectural structure was indeed a beautiful sight when empty.
The “Town & Country” describes the video as the best ever seen and also “Strangely Soothing”. The whole video is fascinating and commendable.
