Great idea! Everyone needs more storage for little odds and ends...batteries, chargers, lightbulbs, pens, pencils, and every other knick knack you can think of. I purchased this library card catalog from craigs list. With a little handy work...it has become a dining room conversation piece. It works as a sideboard, a "hold everything" cabinet, and even fits wine bottles!!
Card catalogue. I've wanted one of these, my whole life. I want it as a little shrine to the blessed goodness that is the Dewey Decimal System. I can smell all of those little manila cards, just looking at the photograph. Remember the wonder of looking through these, as a child? The entire world of books, finger by finger, all neatly organized in 3x5.
One of a series of library education posters designed by Peabody Visual Aids in the 1930s and 1940s, which I salvaged from a throw-away pile at my library school in 2003. These were created under the supervision of visionary librarian Ruby Ethel Cundiff.
